Move It

Vincent parker 1948 (South Ozone Park, NY)

Standing alone in the a dingy back alley, looking past the revulsion and the pity

some day things are gonna change, shoot ... somehow ... someway, I'll say.

Deep into the thought process my mind throwing words of abuse, wont stop,

can't stop ... take them please ... make them jeez ... will you, go away.

Anytime, plenty of time, no time ... what the hell is time when you're caught

in the in-between and the clouds are brewing, the hard time is gonna fall.

I pray move on ... move on and on, as we like to roll with these days that

seem to collapse and the heaviness of the air is choking ... move on ...

As the choices seem limited and the debt has come due, but hey we all

have been through this before and the past has lead us up to this point

And the point is ... that is the point!
