"THE BALLAD OF MJRKC"
Major KC, they
never understood why you liked to be called a major. Did they know
about the military or the peace corps? I bet you really kicked some
ass when you were over there
Been a long time
since I've been around to pay a visit, and I'm sorry. But life has
gotten pretty busy, and I'm married now. And we're trying hard to
start a family, so that's why.
You remember when
we would sit and talk for hours in the hot sun? We figured out life
and the universe while we drank some. I always brought along your
favourite scotch and some paper cups.
Did I tell you I
really did enjoy the times that we spent together? You always made me
laugh when you told me the same old stories, and it didn't bother me
even though I'd heard them a thousand times.
On the corner, in
the middle of an intersection on a crowded street. A blanket for a
floor and a shopping cart full of memories. You made the only home
you could since your life turned upside down.
I can see them,
looking at you like you're something straight from a horror film.
Judging with their eyes as they step aside to avoid you and you never
said a thing aside from "do you have any change to spare?"
Life was so
going your way and then one day it all came crashing down. You never
saw it coming, like a deer hit by a truck you hit the ground.
Major KC, I know you must've had a family one time that cared for you. I wonder where they are and if they were told what happened. I can't imagine them not being here to say goodbye.
I will miss you. I bet you never knew how much an effect that you had on me. I always meant to tell you one day but I never did. I hope that you can find it in your soul to forgive me.
Life was so going your way and then one day it all came crashing down. You never saw it coming, like a deer hit by a truck you hit the ground.
And your soul flies away. Free to go, free to stay. Love is lost, love is gained. As you find your way. (repeat)
