Inside you is a drummer,
one God put there

Maybe a rock drummer,
a jazz drummer,
a hip-hop drummer,
or some new kind of drummer
no one else has ever heard of

March to the beat of that drummer,
not anyone else’s

***

Notes:

According to this forum thread, the saying this poem alludes to is based on something Henry David Thoreau said in Walden.
