Be That As It May

Posted to Action Poetry




A song
Wild crescendo electric guitar and steady rocking bass & drums, augmented by horns, reminiscent of the Stone’s “Bitch” but doesn’t really sound that much like it except in feel. - Bill King.


BE on time said the man to the other
THAT is the way for a professional job
AS they exited the car on one side and the other
IT didn’t seem like his last day to drive
Mmmm, it didn’t seem like it,

MAY is the month when flowers brought the rain.
May still thirsts for a little more May.
Rain drops ripple in a circular way,
But be that as it may,
That was another day.

That was another day.

DON'T count the money now the man warned
COUNT me out, me out is that I don't know you
YOU'RE not gonna take me down town
CHICKENShit rat-fink stooly done dimed me
Be that as it may,
That was another day.

That was another day.
