holds the band

together, listens

to their shit

(plays the peacemaker),

hauls the most gear all

over the fucking

place, been taking

her/his rage out on the

skins & cymbals

since her/his early teens,

would’ve put a

gun to her/his head

had mom & dad

not gotten that set

for her/him way back

when, the most

wanted in the city,

loyal to one band

if s/he’s honest,

whoring her/himself

out to 9 if s/he’s

not, plays the electrics,

learns the drum

machines, djs

on the computer &

kicks back with

her/his internal

rhythm by tapping

both feet to

infinite beats

while doing

everything from

sitting in class

to working the

production line.
