loaded drummer girl

a wrecked toyota van with subwoofers
pumps, inflating the festive air

with harsh rippling sounds of ghetto swing
marching drummer girls drills in bulging
organza rainbow kitsch

they expertly sky rocket shiny batons
somebody screams in the rowdy crowd

a bloodied man runs over the street
jumps the school fence and gets shot in the back

one drummer girls places a baby browning
in her knee height and the band continues

the crowd cheers and in the distance red flashing
sirens blend in with the carnival of the dead

  1. Good one Martin. The two very different happenings are quite jarring, you show it well.
