The Cowards Song

The Cowards Song

1.
I left like a speeding arrow
To live the straight and narrow
Got a job in a supermarket
Felt I was on target
Now I’m punching the clock and counting the day
Until I get my hard earned pay.

2.
Who’s that girl standing there?
Who’s that girl who’s caught my stare?
My eyes have never been more blessed
By this girl who seems above the rest
Could this be the one to test
My moral mettle, my soul’s best
Who’s that girl standing there?
Who’s that girl who’s caught my stare?

The Girl in the Bakery

1.
When I’m working
I’m mostly listening
Your voice is like a symphony
Chopin!
Bach!
Beethoven!
They’re all a fluent Dali
Melting in time away
But you’re a one-tongue orchestra
That in my mind forever plays.

2.
I cannot place my sight specifically
Upon what it is
That makes you so beautiful?

3.
You’re like a cat,
But in a kitten sense
Walking softly with a bounce
A carefree motion
Taking strides with emotion
And upon some ball of happiness
A readiness to pounce.

4.
You’re a Mona Lisa for my words
I could not paint you in a thousand words.

5.
Perhaps it is just your pretty smile.
