Folk are Just Folk

Talking to a stranger today, We got yakking at the mall, Waiting for our wives I must say, The two of us killing time is all. Now from Texas visiting here As a conversation we struck, Till my first thought was I best stay clear And certain topics I should duck. I mean as certain states go Ain't Texas 'bout as red as red can be? And me well, an old Democrat you know, Trump and guns I best leave you'll agree. But I welcomed him to my home town, About as neutral as Mister Spock And the two of us worked around, Engaging solely in small talk. And very pleasant I must say, Two guys waiting for their wives, Till I wished him a good day And we went on with our lives. And you know it reminded me again, Folk are just folk and mostly good souls And maybe goddamn Fox and CNN, It's time I turned off the real assholes.
