The Sun's Going Down on the West

the best part
of falling down
is getting back up
or catching that branch
right before sliding fast
all the way down
the hillside
and who knew that
jazz could flood one
with such emotion
that afterwards you'd
know the song flew
by too fast those steel
brushes against the
skins of the drum
still making that cool
sound in your head
makes one humble
music does
and if you don't care
about jerusalem
think of it's history
it's name means
legacy of peace
a good inheritance
something to hold
onto like hope
the sun is going down
on the west
a golden blood orange
