Don't lose your music: worker scholar whose power comes from within

Time Warp

He wears a white
T shirt with a
Gold chain dangling
From his neck

Calls everybody
Homey, even the
White guys

Carries a mini
Boom box
Radio

He’s 44 years old
And has never
Held a job

He had a bad
Car accident that
Left him disabled

He now works in a
Warehouse heat sealing
Cellophane packages

You just get on board
