The Boss


Springsteen wants his audience to leave the arena, as he commands them, with

Bruce IS the boss…

and we, his devoted fans,
when he takes the stage, we rise.
“How high, how high?” we ask.
And he breathes his earnest, his life
into the microphone,
and our hearts beat.
“How fast, how fast?” we ask.
And he strums his first, raw, passionate note,
and our bodies begin to dance.
“May we listen and dance and sing forever, Boss?”
It appears so.
