for Tukso Okey
shut them down, the whispering tongues
just stay tight
no compromise tonight or any other night
Because, can you make black eyes blue?
gloves into shoes?
rams into ewes?
You paid all your dues
Now do it your way
because your way brings
dancing moths to a benevolent flame
sensual hips that move unashamed
sparking hot connections..
and you know you’re to blame.
Let your guitar wail and your voice go raw
Sing the words back that they throw like flowers on your stage
make everyone feel young and dream
no matter health or age..
You have the gift my brother
don’t ever change
Don’t water it down
keep it thick and hot
make hearts pump in throats and loins
Don’t stop. Never stop!
