(mourning bells)

mourning bells ringing

chimes for the new thoughts and day

ring til my head clears

No Regrets

I feel bad about the way it ended

But I carry no regrets

I said things I shouldn’t have

But I have no regrets

You, too said nasty things

And I would guess

You have no regrets

This can be chalked up

To ‘just how we are’

And no need for regrets

I understand

As I’m sure you do too

There is no apology

Nothing which can be said

For we both know

No other way

Than, to disregard this completely

For there are no regrets

Solid Advice

I go to bed too late

I rise up too early

The sky is still blue

And the water flowing from my pipes is still clear

Dogs still bark

And shit on my lawn, sometime in the night

My neighbor is still a pain in the crotch

And I have nothing in the fridge to eat

Boys will be boys

And the girls will still be girls

This is life, Kido

Nothing really changes

Not in a major sense of way

There will still be babies born

And the old and young alike, will still die

I’ll keep wondering off at nothing

And laugh at the same, when I get back

The day is light

The night, dark

These are the things we can count on

And do count on

And that’s just about all I seem to need
