OLD DREAMS

OLD DREAMS

it’s nothing fancy
just an old two-story home –
unfinished basement
plastic siding over wood
on high ground against a flood

and the neighborhood?
hey! It’s about just plain folks
folks living just plain –
no doctors, bankers, lawyers
nope! we’re wood-cutters, sawyers

this is where i live
oh i could do much better
this i tell myself
trying to set self above
giving my old butt a shove

talk about old age
talk about one being stuck
talk about old dreams
nope! this common crowd will do
sorry for the lonely few
