board the plane in greenville
headed for baton rouge
sexy honkettes

in window seats
magnificent view
outside

october sky
picasso faces
beyond the clouds

the sun is setting
in a parallel pentatonic time
dicky betts rips power chords

ronnie van zant sprawls
on the cabin floor
he imagines lucille

bb king’s guitar
a known psychic medium
ronnie has already seen

down the southern rock tracks
pratt and whitney are about
to scream

over mississippi
we’re out of lyrics!
buckle up tight

vector back
in muscle shoals
percy sledge aretha franklin

wilson pickett and the swampers
17 miles into the future tuesday’s gone
wednesday will never be the same
