THUMB WARS

I wish we could watch an old film, one that you’re in
Get lost in the tales, sink back the gin
Meet your old man, tell him how I loved you
Sing with the boys, over streets, out the window
And on your advice, I read Catcher in the Rye
Can’t say I’m a fan, can’t promise that......

I won’t say nothing to no one
About the frailties in all of their gods
Got dealt an ace for a short time
Somehow we all lost

I wish we could play one more thumb war, your bendy fingers
A photo unfocused, a mindset that lingers
You taught all the boys, who fell at your feet
That beauty resides, in the people you meet
And I read Kerouac, on your advice
I heard coffee house secrets, can’t promise that......

I won’t say nothing to no one
About the frailties in all of their gods
Got dealt an ace for a short time
Somehow we all lost

There’s a hole in this thing,
Where all of the memories drift,
Through which we sift,
Now that you’ve left.

I wish we could watch an old film,
One you’ve never been in.
