Toccata Cheese
Ajambo

My heart it beats
 1
faster than a woodpecker
 2
pecks at wood
 3
Faster than a barefooted slave
 4
running from his owner.
 5
Faster than the smalll hand on
 6
my digital clock;
 7
rotates at 360 degrees per 12 hours.
 8
My heart has worms
 9
my hair has perms
 10
my crotch has germs
 11
the worms
 12
squirm
 13
in my heart.
 14
The perms perm
 15
in my hair.
 16
The germs germinate
 17
in my crotch.
 18
The small hand rotates on my
 19
crotch watch.
 20
The chickens in the den,
 21
signal it's time for me to awake.
 22
It was all a dream, it is time for me
 23
to go to work
 24
modeling my hands.
 25

I experimented with rhyme in this one. This one really speaks to me. This also, will published in my books entitled, "Chickens in the Den--If You Don't Buy this, You're Racist." It will be out in May 2007

This is going to be put into a book? You can't be serious. This poem makes no sense. What does chickens in the den have to do with anything? And the title. What's up with that?

You are simply to simple to understand this poem, I will not hold it against you.
