A Jovial Little Ditty

A Jovial Little Ditty


I am not expired


I am not ready to be retired


while the rest are hardwired


all this tuning out


while I am tuning in

Start turning on your light


let’s begin:



The reasons that we try to hide


is from pain and tears we hold inside

Everything we touch can be turned to gold


instead of enslaved, bought and sold


Raise your glass, raise and arm


tell the world you mean no harm


I wish to live in simplicity


basking in the state of tranquility


tap a glass and make a toast


to the ones that matter most
