A JAMES BROWN CHRISTMAS

 

It

somehow

is always the low

that teaches you

the high

of Christmas

or any other over-elevated

emotional

sentimental time

 

easy to laugh

with a belly full of whiskey

& nogg

and holiday enchiladas

in your gut

 

but even so,

during the high times

I canít help

thinking of

the bills

or the unfinished

and sometimes sinister

business deals

and getting older

and

am I really doing

what I need

to be

doing?

 

Yet,

when the low tide

of Yule tide

comes a knockin

maybe itís your family

member

dying

or somebody close

to your heart

sick

or you got robbed

raped

or just fucked over

by your boss

had to work

instead of noggin

 

Itís those times

when you

really

appreciate

what the holidays

can offer,

whether itís

about

Christmas

or some other

religious

or hybrid holiday

 

Itís the low moments

that make you wanna

hold somebody

 

and this year is no

different

 

this year

we lost James Brown

to Heaven

or Hell

just doesnít matter

cuz he ainít down here

suffering with the

the rest us

anymore

 

so there it is

there it is

James Brown is dead

and finally

once and for all

Free

Free

Free

 

thank the gods of midnight

he is free

 

and James Brown is dead

and James Brown is dead

and James Brown is dead

yes he is

 

soul singer

funky dance master

genius of the working manís sweat

 

long live, brother

long live, James Brown.
