Music Gangsters

music gangsters gambled

underground stories of illicit emotion

stiletto melodies and jailbreak beats

covert chords and loaded lyrics

in trick dice rhyme schemes

and back alley arrangements

slinking beyond bars in code word phrases

passing notes to hired players

tom tom rhythms under the tables

conducting cymbal hits with stacked decks
