The Drum

The Drum

Muscular hands tap the drum
to create a melody
of an African genre
energetic and enchanting

so the dance will begin
so the fever will rupture

the soft patter on the drum
will steadily rise
and erupt into a cacophony
dancers will dance lame
sweat will pour without shame
in the orgy

the drum will hum
with tune of loud music
like a river
it will wither
and the dancers
wrapped in the frenzy
will scream
only to realize the chasm
on the drum!
