Where have they gone,
The happy ones?

Where have they gone,
The appreciative ones?

Where have they gone,
Those who don’t complain about others.

Those who are cool
With people being who they are,
With people doing their thing,

The ones who don’t pass judgment,
Who don’t mock,
Who don’t put their shit on others.

Where have those people gone,
Because I’m looking for them.

Where have those people gone,
I hope they are still out there.

Where have they gone,
I want to be one.

Around four in the morning 

I woke to a fright

I’m quite unprepared to discuss

Rest assured there is no danger

Only a shocking wake up call

To attempt falling back asleep

I warmed up the old Comcast headache.

Scrolling through the guide

I stumbled upon an old Dinah Shore show

In black and white even

Surely I would be out soon

Nope.

Joel Osteen. Nope.

NBA highlights. Nope.

Nothing.

Let the darkness bring peacefulness

To my weary bones tonight.
