For David (Still Stuck In Kansas)

Walking with one shoulder clinging to the wall

As if you are the only reason it stands

Swaying gently, back and forth, back and forth

Don’t go down, for now there is no up

Spin like a top and let it all hang out

You’ve got the hang of this pretty well

You do just fine

Just remember to practice

And if the gods start to laugh at you

Or cast thunder upon you, and knock you down

Just think back

Back to how well you mastered this feat

The obstacles you overcame, the races you won

These are the times champions like you shine

Shine like an atomic blast

Here in the alley, the one with no lights to guide you

And the wall you so heroically hold up

All by yourself
