Funky

“Its not cool anymore 

To play the funky music”

Grooving to a bass line
Seems now superseded
By repetitive hard rhythms
Harmonically sparse vamping
Is not something cool guys do
Soft sophistications
Lost to hard beats and rap
Oh to be lost in the complexities
Of chords extending and rhythms moving
To hear those altered ninths
To dance to a jazzy downbeat
Be lifted by the horns
Feel the music flowing
Through mind and body
Let’s get Funkensteins monster
Back on the dance floor
Spark that electricity
Syncopate that heartbeat
Bring the F-beat back to life….
