Rich vein of funky wisdom, soulful art;
Opulent harmonies in sync with pain;
Bebop rushing madly to the brain;
Elegant tears enveloping the heart:
Rich veins require miners to reveal
The gold that else would be encased in rock;
Gold beneath the gilded grace of pop;
Ore turned into lore, the past made real;
Lingo lit with love and well displayed;
Dug up and cast in meaning that won't fade.
