Nathan J. Bogart

Rookie (Detroit, MI)

I'm Innocent, Red


I saw an old man sitting on a park bench
And, he threw crumbs at the seagulls
His smile engulfing his face almost entirely
The only smiles that compared were on
The children running by throwing Frisbees
I guess we're all a little like Andy Dufresne
We start out clean
Climb through miles of s***
And, miraculously end up clean again
