2. ..
I have squandered my resistance
For a pocket full of mumbles, Such are promises
All lies and jests
Still a man hears what he wants to hear
And disregards the rest.

After changes we are more or less the same."

12. "I'm such a dubious soul,"

And a walk in the garden
Wears me down.
Tangled in the fallen vines,
Pickin up the punch lines,
Ive just been fakin it,
Not really makin it.

22. that was at a time when writers wrote songs and singers sang
Edited on Thu Sep-17-09 10:22 PM by rurallib
and every line rhymed. Then rock hit a major growth spurt with the likes of S&G

From "Emily wherever I may find her"

"We walked on frosted fields
Of juniper and lamplight"

From American Tune:

"we come at the nation's most uncertain hour"

23. Dangling Conversation
Like a poem poorly written
We are verses out of rhythm
Couplets out of rhyme
In syncopated time.

27. A winter's day...
...in a deep and dark December.

I am alone.

Gazing through my window

to the street below

on a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow.

I am a rock. I am an Island.

35. Three lines actrually
Just a come-on from the whores on seventh avenue.
I do declare there were times when I was so lonesome,
I took some comfort there.

45. Hello Grandpa my old friend. Your busy day is at an end.
Your exploits have been sad and boring.
They tell a tale that's worth ignoring.
When you're alone, the words of your stories will echo down the rest home walls,
'cuz no one at all,
can stand the sound
of Grandpa.
