As I contemplate life Through thick lenses glasses of the whiskey bottle Is there life? What is life, what is the lie, or even the truth? Or is there only the journey to darkness If so, why not buy a first class ticket To the black hole of the universe There in death, I can sit In peace Dreaming of the rebirth of atoms and molecules Then, I ponder some more I remember years ago Holding a soda pop bottle I just couldn’t discard Somehow I was happy He was my invisible friend We sure had adventures Nighttime I was safe He would guard the window Be would both gaze at the stars I would talk and he sure knew how to listen These memories bring me smiles even now Is the universe that strange? Are we all related so, objects, minds and souls? All I know, is maybe I better stick around Have a soda Savoring my youthful days When all my friends came around to play Yelling Ricky, come on out, it’s a beautiful day! Baseball was always fun back then I always had my soda pop bottle in my bag Surrounded by friends and so so content As I contemplate life I am somewhat amazed That the ghost from the Christmas past Is no illusions after all Chains be dammed, I am set free I awake with a new vigor To a new year Notes: First I recommend to read Orange Crush The adventures of Soda Pop by Richard Lamoureux, all of them are a series. So, I added my dark side, and a wee bit of Charles Dickens at the end, as he like Richard used to write stores in series like this. I thought it unique to combine these 3 ideas in one! I took the character of Ricky, aged him, and had him look back in time!
