6000 MILES FROM HOME

"Each experience is locked within my heart and only I hold the key..."

Stifling heat,hectic surroundings,locals their lifestyle
politeness,honesty stems from karma overwhelming profile
hardworking for a pitance,food to provide
sending money to the village,the family to divide.

Monies earned in cities,triple valued north
tourist prices enable the workers to go forth.
Youths sleeping beneath cardboard,such a crying shame
reds and blues collide,goverment all to blame.


On arriving home,no possibility to explain
the differance Thailand throws from luxury to the pain
however life goes on,in Pattaya o so what a thrill
to walk the golden dragon stairs, the giant Buddah on the hill.

    I can't connect the last verse to the previous ones? I thought I was in Texas or a Mexican border state and then found out I was in Thailand? Maybe one more verse before the last? Or letting us know where we are in verse 1? light & love

    I like it, I like it. Where we go changes us. Was the Freddie Mercury tribute you attended with your Skinbob (I like it, I like it) filmed? Would like to have it unless only you have the key. Nola (Perez)
