RAGTIME SOUL

 

I have a ragtime soul
With its ragged rhythm
and syncopated beats
a little out of step
unexpected
hard to dance to
My strong bass notes
anchor me
and the chords on the weak beats
let me fly
I have a ragtime soul
A rhythm believing in meter
and a melody denying
meter even exists
No Jazz here
Catch the swing!
