The Prince in the Place

by Kimajor

Someday my prince will come
but the purple one didn't enter
In this dark place
JACK-son's on the horn
scalin' away
and Chuck is-in-the-corner
drumming funky
in a Latin way
"Got to use bass, man
Got to be heavy on the foot"
While smoke curls overhead
won't need another Camel
for three mo' days, he says
At the table
late-night risotto and pancetta
turn to cheesy rice and bacon
Passing in the bar
brothers-to-brothers acknowledge
leaning into that handshake
On the street
folks pass the joint
and see a prince
reign over the keyboard
and dab cloth to his forehead
keeping time to the night
