Can You Hear The Drums?

entry picture


She’s wild and crazy, she’s lay abed lazy

just can’t get up out of her pit.

And shit, the dawning is no time

to sleep or reap the rewards

of a hard won night just on another flight of fancy. 


She’s a real a tough nut,

Slut rough, cut rough and ready girl.

Just the sort of slick chick

he'd pick

to blow out his lights in the morning.


She knows the every inch of her night time,

a shite time in the rain.

Well that’s the name of the game she’s playing

the only game that paying.

Hey, and stop pinning the blame on Charlie and brown Captain Jack.


Stood beneath a street light she awaits

a bright White Knight strong enough to fight her dragon.

to flight the fury inside her head

and lay her down upon a bed of wildest rose


Soft, sing her a layabed song,

Sing her a lullaby, a stay in her head number,

a slow sexy slumber.


Can you hear the drums Fernando?


If you had it all to do again you would my friend,

I just know you would for sure.


Can you hear the knocking at the door?


The song is deep inside her head, it fills the room,

beside her bed

sketching last night’s dream until tomorrow never comes.


Are you sure you can’t hear the drums?

Plenty of effective word choice. Like the trip along the concept and physically along the lines of this rather delectable poem. Liked it lorry-loads. Ta much.

This reminds of when you come home from a rave and you've still got the beat pounding in your head due to 'Charlie'. I'm probably a million miles off what you're trying to put across, but that was my interpretation.

Great structure and rhyme scheme by the way. Loved it.

I had prepared myself in readiness for another of your excellent "niche" poems. My preparation has gone to waste, though. I shall have to splash out on a book of erotic poetry instead.
