Leaving - Poem by Joe Howell

don't take my picture today
leave with out it, dont stop
at the city limits and have a smoke
put the car in drive and get on with it

the flowers didn't bloom this may
water wasn't fresh or fall was to late
I will be leaving soon taking the bus
Dallas looks good, know someone there

I had soup for supper, with some bread
David said that he could work on the car
the insurance check will be here soon
and i want to just move on

don't take my picture to day
it's too late for me to stay
