LISTEN TO THE DRUMBEAT

          LISTEN TO THE DRUM BEAT


 Thump, thump, hear the sound that makes the world 
 Go around,

 Feel the pounding of its rhythm, the drum beats hard, 
 The heart beats fast.

 Listen to the drum beat that lives inside, listen  
 to music, the drumbeat cries,

 Boom, boom, echoes through the sky, thunder is the  
 Drum, It beats out loud.

 Wait for the rumbling as the shaking earth trembles 
 With an awesome fear,

 Bang, bang, listen as the sleeping child's heart  
 Comes to life in the dark night.


 Bombs and gunfire sing through the war beaten land, 
 Thump, thump,

 The drum beats slow, the drum beats fast, a mothers 
 Terror as her son dies.

 The dancing boxer, hard hit as he is dropped to the  
 Floor, beat of his heart,

 Thump, thump, boom, boom, goes his heart like 
 The drumbeat so slow.

 Listen to the drumbeat, to the sound of wandering feet, 
 Like a drum,

 A first breath of life, a slower and slower beat of the 
 Fading, going away.
                                   Keith Garrett
