Would that I had

a Lampshade on my head

something that would make you smile

at least for a while,


I wanted to be

the aspirin for your head

to soothe, and calm the noise from

the Devil’s Hot Foot Band

like AC/DC at hand,


If only, I could tell you stories

of how, when I was young, and what

I did, and how that brought me to you

that would I do,


Would that I had,

the courage

to tell, and to write


but, if not for your inspiration,


What would, I then be?

other than just me…
