Poetic Thoughts - Let It Go / Take Five - by C.W. Pruitt II
posted: Jan. 07, 2005

Poetic Thoughts header

Langston Hughes loved jazz. He played no instrument, but considered himself a jazz poet. In honor of the great Langston Hughes, I offer these two jazz poems to help soothe you through your day:

Let It Go
Let it go.
Go with the flow.
Then let the flow go.
Are you free enough
to let it go?

Take Five

Tired of all the hussle bussle jive?
TAKE FIVE, BABY, TAKE FIVE
All the boxin U doin make U want 2 take a dive?
TAKE FIVE, BABY, TAKE FIVE
Not getting ALL in life U strive?
TAKE FIVE, BABY, TAKE FIVE
All the small stuff makin U break into a hive?
TAKE FIVE, BABY, TAKE FIVE
All the Jumbo junk make U feel so unalive?
TAKE FIVE, BABY, TAKE FIVE
