sunny, oh my heart and garters
ain’t it just a drag
dance hall days and desperation
never were my bag
sex and drugs and juvenilia
intemperance and crime
may not be the stuff of legend
but serve to pass the time
show me where the future’s waiting
and just what it may bring
another day another reason
this bird ain’t gonna sing

    I really liked this poem but it immediately reminded me of “The Tiger Lillies” and one of the songs we exchanged..good job and great ending.. πŸ˜€

    • I’m not sure why I chose “sunny”, that’s just the way the line came to me. That is a lovely version of a lovely song though πŸ˜€
