Hammer and Drumsticks


A hammer and drumsticks were the tools of his trade
To build him a structure of rhythm well-made.
.....
The hanging of windows and hinging of doors,
The banging of bongos and thumping of floors,
The crashing and drilling and snaring and filling,
The tapping and knocking and stomping and rocking.
.....
The forming foundations,
For hands and for feet,
The drumming of rhythms
A heartbeat can beat.
.....
The high-hats and rafters and rimshots and laughter,
The splashing and smashing and pounding and lashing,
The creaking of ladders and rolling of drums,
The callousing hands and the blistering thumbs.
.....
The rhythm of rhythm
A housing of rhythm!
.....
A hammer and drumsticks were the tools of his trade
To build him a lifetime of music well-made.
.....
