The drum is my lover. I shall not want. He leadeth me upon the stage of my longing. He fills my soul to overflowing. Yea though I walk through the shadow of the valley of death, I shall not be afraid. The drum and the rhythm shall protect me, even as shield against harm. I have only to open to the music, to be empty and free. Then will the drum comfort and excite me. Then will the drum reawaken me to the perfection of being.
