Fifth Movement

It is time for the fifth movement –
Not understanding the first four
But now is the concerto
Heightened pitch
The bravado!

Sing loudly!
Play the strings!
Blow the horns!
Bang the drums and
Dance boldly.

It is time for the fifth movement.

It is time to intensify the chorus
An orchestra uninhibited
Without a conductor
Blaring rhythms in synchronicity
As natural as nature.

It is time for the fifth movement.

A movement of freedom –
A movement of peace –
A movement of solidarity
A movement of tolerance
In strophic form.

Sing sopranos!
Sing altos and tenors!
Sing the bass to the beat
Sing baritones and be free!
Rumpa – Rumpa – Bam – BAM!

It is time for the fifth movement.

Cacophony of sound rising, RISING!
Ringing out Black Lives Matter!
Singing Me Too with swagger!
Dancing the climax of Transgender rights!
With marijuana floating wildly upon the stanzas.

It is time for the fifth movement.

Let go of the limited binary form –
For the music is coming
The orchestra is playing
The singers are vocalizing
The audience is clapping!

It is time for the fifth movement!

It is time, NOW!
SING NOW!
PLAY NOW!
DANCE NOW!
It is time.
