Green Gold by Joe Reid Kirby III
Burn the paper slow …
Watch it go …
To black & white,
After the glow …
On a one seat ride,
To beyond’s front row …
& you know …
You just know that you know …..
Every answer to your questions,
Understanding every meaning to a movie or song,
From the most terrible way he treated her,
To his preference in her favorite thong …
Is it wrong?
To be right …
Or to know when you’re being treated wrong?
Are my thoughts automatically higher than yours,
If my lips just kissed the bong?
Show me one person who doesn’t care about someone,
& I’ll show you why they’re a liar …
Because everyone cares about someone,
& that’s a step in the right direction for this web of a world,
Green gold … take me higher.
