If you and one more is two many

And it’s inclement whether you like it or not

If you’d give your last dime for a penny

And you’re not really cool, but you’re hot

If there’s no rhyme in the words in your pen

And no sense in the thoughts in your head

If you think of the places you’ve been

And just want to go back to bed

If they’re over there with theirs

And you’re over here with you

If they caught you in your unawares

And it wasn’t a pass that you threw

Come talk to me


By Gene

I am a lover, a fighter, and a midnight writer. I love football, hamburgers, and philosophical inquiries. I love Jesus more than any of that. I love my wife, my daughters, my grandson, and my English Setters, Huck and Finn. I also love Huck Finn...and other seminal characters in American literature. Like Gus McCrae. I love the English language. I love to dive into the wonders of its depth and splash around in the shallow end where colloquialisms and slang rule and reign.
