Obligations of Life

 

outward bound

battered suitcase by my side

backpack slung over shoulder

closing door pushes me out

taxi, plane and bus awaits



on the road again

wife and lover left behind

mama don’t cry for me

as I go down

that lonesome road again



not to live

just to work

off to work I go

obligations, complexity

…. perspective

still it sucks
