Doctor Shackle and Mister Jive
A tale of two often opposing realities
grounded in too often opposing philosophies
Combining futures and pasts
All sin no saint
The things we do for a hot meal

Shackle and Jive the lessons and predictions
Public Private Partnerships
In silos and compartments
and condos and apartments
We can only sometimes be ourselves

Every motive ulterior
Every gesture chess play
Each new rising an opportunity
to perfect the unperfectable
If we believe it then it is so
