Click here to hear the poet read his words:

the answer

don’t live your life she sternly said
until we can be together
you tell me you are on the road
don’t lie I know you better

her face is red her skin is blotched
her temperature is rising
frustration oozes from her pores
I find it unsurprising

women clamber on my wagon
thinking it’s the place to be
they hope that I’ll bring love and joy
free them from misery

I always try to do my best
I help whenever I can
but I can never be the answer
after all I’m just a man

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless.
