Truly Great Find

You are

A truly great find

Last of the unpicked gems

Like finding a box of silver in the corner of a thrift shop

Better than finding a Rembrandt at a garage sale

The barmaid come up to me

Smiles and winks

She said she has something I might like

She found one last bottle

Of that coveted whiskey

Tucked away in the back and unnoticed for so long

Here’s to you old friend

The last of the last greats

Make it a double

You And I

You and I

Share our own little world

It’s not the only world

But this one is just ours

We rise in mid afternoon

We go to sleep

when the sun comes up

Our bar stays open 24 hours a day

We can smoke in it too

We have our friends

But see them rarely

They tend to just hold us back

Bring us down

For we have work to do

We write, drink, smoke, fight, sleep

We’re much too busy

To let them, most of the time

And besides

This is our world

Not theirs

Our special place

Not theirs

We share it

And share it well

You and I
