Out Of Step

 

he had no timing
he had no rhythm
out of step with the beat
so he made his own beat

carried it with him

as he walked down the street 

he was adagio in an allegro world 

playing in a forgotten minor key

always in the wrong place

at the wrong time

always a day late

a dollar short

he didn’t give a damn anymore 

sir eccentric- mr. irrelevant 

an invisible man 

society was dead to him

so he read from his books

and admired his paintings 

drank some fine gin

he was quite comfortable 

with the world he lived in

a world of his own

no he didn’t care
