Walt Disney had it right.

Black cotton fallin’

Amid the sounds of jive

Imperceptibly bouncin’

On tiled floors

Ravens squawkin’

Lyin’ & hidin’

Sellin’ & stealin’

Cheatin’ & schemin’

Armchair quarterbacks

Keepin’ score

Trash jump-shots

Keepin’ score

Picnic homeruns

Keepin’ score

Pseudo politicians

Still can’t score

All nestled within

Mirrored walls

Livin’ large, livin’ low, barely livin’ a’tol

Fall black cotton, do your bounce, bounce your do, do your rag, tape, trim

Who’s next?

Prophet Coleman

Fruit of the Spirit Christian Fellowship Church
