Pessimist thinking


Don't forget to tell Old Bill
To bring jeans
Ours are through
If they talked they would tell
All the places that we've been
And how the things went us well
And how we got the queen out
From the place that she was in

But a long road it is waiting
For us to walk it down
And the time for us is short
Soon we ought to leave our town
To get to the Austin desert
A place that we call 'the enemy's ground'

Sun is sliding along the road
That road that tomorrow
To the south it will be leading
We're still carrying a heavy load
A heavy load
Our pessimist thinking
The conscience that our ship
Though strong
It sinks and sinks
And keeps on sinking

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
