Go folks

I’m not leaving, I ain’t going… you never asked me to! So I’ll sit and smile here with you, like I never thought I’d do. Wash the walls and paint the windows, polish face and shave the shoe. I got gal and I got friends, like I never thought I’d do. I never thought the sun would rise in the east and set in west; I figured I owned just dark skies and that darkness ft me best. Here I is, all thin and balled-up, wrapped up in a coat of you. I ain’t hemmed-in, I ain’t walled-up; I am free and I’m loving you. I can snooze and I can amble. I can jump when you say “boo.” Freedom is a hard-won gamble; so is holding things like you. My chest swells and my nose snores; it’s all okay by you. I’ve never felt this welcome before… I’d a never thunk, would you? Serves one right. No need to think. It will all be laid before us, and god will guide us to our graves, smiling, singing: Go folks! Go forth! Go folks! Trust your brain! Trust your body!
