Jump-start or fall apart

Generally, flattery won’t boost the battery.

Jump-start or fall apart

No pervious or porous shell,
Heeds lucid signal sent to warn.
Coherent cause may sit a spell,
Lest music make its mirth reborn.

If I could live my life again,
Then maybe cellular “Amen”
Could block explicit, tacit fails
And keep four wheels upon the rails.
