by Elvis Bojangles


I apologize for

being too free

being too me

& too blind to see


You're mighty kind

sharing your mind

with the limitations of me

& offering equality


I cherish your gifts

your brain your madness

your body your soul

your gladness & sadness


It's really too much

to say you are pure

beauty & truth

prevailing unto eternity


But that's what you

appear to be

to a wanna-be butler

fading away on social security


"the eternal never fades. and be you

 touched by it, funds shall never exhaust"
