SIMPLE THINGS

it’s just the simple things
that get ya high
just 2 chords on guitar
that make ya smile

kid w a funny face
ice cream on his chin
his daddy is laughing sideways
his son jes did him in

ol lady w a walker
her head is bowed so low
her friend he carries groceries
latch key to let her go

yr big ol ears are see-thru
it’s the sun that makes em red
a lake can smell like leaves
clean sheets are on yr bed

an old picture of yr mom n daddy
before they had you kids
smiling at the camera
n holding hands…
