Nevertheless, The Show Must Go On.
The Show Must Go On.
Satin keys lie within his grasp,
offering a gentler song for America
full of harmony, kindness and hope.
We selected a noteworthy player
to rise above.....ebony sharp,
he was pressed to bring change from the
endless rehashings of that same old song.
But ivory rifts stand between
his dreams and our desires,
to work in concert with him
in the composing of hope.
Ivory rifts reverberate dis-chord,
completely out of tune
with what the masses need to see performed.
only seeking to slam the lid
on his nimble, multi-tasking fingers,
We must "not" allow him
to remain solo, but rather accompany him
raising our voices on a grand scale of encouragement.
Drowning out the uninspired,
all those who have failed
to orchestrate a perfect pitch,
whose leaders have also failed
our massive band of dreamers,
and now stand idle in the wings.
We must silence those who
wail on tiny sad violins,
stringing out their endless
dismay at what could be a masterpiece.
Only then can he continue uninterrupted
to finish his measures, creating a new theme
that will set all hearts to dancing
towards a much brighter tomorrow.
