Morning Walk

The morning is hot
On the west end boardwalk
Wind is high, and I smile
Consensus is that one
Is where we might be
With nature, and nature is a joker
Wind and I have a competition
Where will my straw Stetson end
I smile to myself and anyone passing
I'm up for this play
Hand ready to clap down
Holding the straw crown
Wind wins this time
Golden rim cart wheelie down the wood walk
Me laughing in pursuit
What is the use
Of anything else?

Pretty Much©

Jumped out of the car
Had enough
Jumped out of that car
Had enough
Crazy making
Conversation
Had enough
Had enough

Stopped to scratch my head
What’s that thought
Stopped to scratch my head
Now what’s that thought
Time is melting
A train gone wrong
Maybe not so much
Maybe not so much

Should I run or stay
Maybe not so much
Should I run or stay
Maybe not so much
Heard that Courage
Is fear walking
Pretty Much
Pretty Much

Heard that Courage
Is fear walking
Pretty Much

Pretty Much
Pretty Much


Pretty Much
