ONLY WE'VE

Pushed the carton aside for a box
Hit the money, ‘on the money’, when it counts
Carried a tune in a midnight alley
Caught a firefly
Tipped well when the rest of the table left
“Right...”, when everything went against, “... of way”
Listened with great intent, ears bent, money spent
For a two minute conversation not tilted toward us
The last one on the bus
First hand to hold the door
Revolving the way it does in some stores
Only we’ve
Never bothered
Too far
With the ‘short-end of the stick’
With all the rest of it
Let them have their ...Berry’s
We caught a firefly once
Only we’ve
Done that

Sept/09
