cool james brown

james brown was a rocker of alleged great renown
he would get it on up and he would get it on down
he used to claim he was a sex machine and did a lot of boffing
but now his mojo's got rusty and he's rotting in his coffin

Style / type: 
Structured: Western
Review Request (Intensity): 
I appreciate moderate constructive criticism
Review Request (Direction): 
How does this theme appeal to you?
Last few words: 
I recall I used to put my earplugs in whenever Brown's music got played at the old folks' disco. I don't think this counts as "explcit" as I have intentionally avoided rude words - but if people prefer, I will happily mark it so.

"To reveal art and conceal the artist is art's true aim." Oscar Wilde

...that someone at NP finally appreciated what I think is a minor masterpiece.
