Out of Beat

Updated on July 28, 2017


What has happened as we have slept

This march of life is such out of step

The trumpet tweets, drums out of beat

Our whole procession is so incomplete.


The bugle announces our own reveille

As we all awake such a turmoil we see

Each day we've marched so well in sync

Now all seems lost there's no harmony


The flutes are all silent, as trumpets tweet

Now our step of life has lost its own beat

Strike up the band, let the good times roll

Play trombones loud, our history to unfold


Beat the bass drums, play big tubas too

Open up the flutes and snare drum crew

We've no time to waste, in what we all do

A much better day we should now pursue


Our band of Patriots must all march in time

This life has a reason, a far better rhyme

Let the bugles play, announce a better day

Instead of taps, throw all the tweets away

      Great rhythm, in and out of time! Life does work like that, hopefully getting back into sync again. Great poem!

      Being a drummer, you have done a great job describing the instruments as well as the sounds they make. I really enjoyed this one. Lets get the band back together and create new memories and remember the old times. Love it

      I like the message in this one. Sometimes things go out of sync for awhile and we have to get it all back in tune again.
