Drinks For Thought Or For Reminder

Cast out like a bullet

So full of life and all

Times like this call for drinks

Drink it all down deep,

And make sure it stays

For this will serve as the constant reminder

Of how life takes turns

When all you wanted was straight and narrow

Let it serve as that reminder,

Of how life comes with curves,

And of how much better those curves are,

With that constant reminder

Packed deep in your gut,

Surrounded by those deep drinks

Right Size Of Life

A lack of space can kill

Confinement smalls the brain,

Dwindling it down to nothing

Troubles like this have been here since the beginning of time

And I seriously doubt they’re going anywhere — at least not soon

So sometimes the only answer is to get lost

Lost in our own thoughts,

Lost out in the wild,

Lost in our dreams,

Lost in love we hopefully find

Sometimes this very sense of lost,

Can open new doors

Expanding our otherwise small and cramping lives

Just make sure you don’t find a place too big, either

‘Too big’ swallows men,

Even the men with the greatest of size

And ‘too big’ will leave you feeling lost

Usually when you need someone around,

But there won’t be anybody in sight,

When things are ‘too big’

So with this little bit of insight,

I’m pleased to tell you,

That most of the time it will all be good

Not ‘too big’, not lacking size, either

And that great buzzard death won’t circle,

At least not most days
