the trumpet player was from

   korea

the saxophone player from

columbia

and they played in the band

which was THE WORLD

 

the bass player  play from

                     puerto rico

with a drummer             from

      denmark

and they played in a band

which spanned THE WORLD

 

but I couldn’t understand the rhythm

   i couldn’t find my soul

      so lost in democracy

         globalization seemed like anarchy

            the isolated idiots from illinois

               would not join the band

               which was the world

               content to watch the third world

               play

               a tune of sorrow and joy

               which runs through all the rivers

               and all the towns

               where the band plays

                  their songs of juxtaposition

 

and i wish you could hear

                                                it

because it is so hard to explain

to the western world

   with their headphones and windshields

      to listen to the humming of the bass

         from puerto rico

 

in the open fields

 

and the black hills

 

under blue skies

 

and a canopy of white

 

 

the trumpet player was not from

   korea

for he was a player in the band

which is the world

for i only hear the sound he makes

   which is beauty

      in the band

         that is the world
