The spoken word

I've just stumbled upon a wonderful little spoken word song by Sage Francis.
It gives the impression of a guy looking back on episodes of life, some of which melancholic.
These episodes are narrated with an air of wisdom our protagonist has acquired over time.
Got 5 minutes to kill? Give it a listen with your fullest attention to take in the words.

I particularly like the line: the television went from being a babysitter to a mistress.

Leave comments with what you think if you have a listen.

If you like it, it's available as a free download on his blog, along with another of his songs entitled 'Slow Man'.

  1. Sage Francis is a God.

    Love the transition of wondering whether you'll do something before you die, we're all constantly waiting for something, even if it means we're missing the thing we're living. Calenders only serve to pass life quicker.
