brink of jazztinction

thunder lizards on the horizon

subtle shaking as they roam closer

stark technicolor nightmares

viscera

a low upright bass off scene

buh doom boom boom boom boom boom boom

buh doom boom boom boom

fingers run down the ivory keys

the tyrannosaurus snaps

a brush across the cymbal

nostrils flared

the scent of prey on the wind

he turns

a shrill trumpet sounds

the smaller creatures bounce along to the bass into the underbrush

on the notes of disharmonious saxophones swoops a pterodactyl

a sweep of the keys

the trumpet sounds

all the while the bass line grows in intensity

a stampede of anklyosaurs rumble across the field

the brass counts down brazen chaos

all the while the upright bass holds the line

buh doom boom boom boom boom boom

boom

buh doom boom boom boom

the clouds part

as the sky fills with fire the percussion mallets roll across the kettle drum

tinkling keys like shards of stone from space tumbling into the atmosphere

the brass erupts

the bass speeds up

tinkling keys become kick drum impact

heads thrown to the sky in challenge

a comet flares across the sky

the kettle drum reaches crescendo at the height of the brass tornado

a storm of notes and scales

the bass line fades but plucks ever silently on

dust flares

encompassing all

the muddled music stops all but the hi hat and slowly increasing volume of the bass

buh doom boom boom boom boom boom boom

boom

buh doom boom boom boom

a sweet pure trilling flute darts amongst the sudden lull

between the deep reverberations

a dragonfly dancing among the particulates

the sharp punch of trombone

a predator awakens

trumpet screams

a flash of color as a bird flies out of the tall grass

the different instruments pull together as the dust settles and a new song finds life

shaky notes strum from the strings

a coda blending perfectly into an intro

as the final lizard is swallowed by ice and gravel in a tinkling of ivory keys

buh doom boom boom boom boom boom boom

boom

buh doom boom boom boom
