Are You Troubled - Poem by jJO CAREY

Are you troubled, are you lonesome
Do you cry when you are alone
Then come with me to lonely street
Where everyone feels the same

They play the blues down there
And cry in their beer
No one hits one on the shoulder
And says hello

You're all alone on lonely street
No one looks you in the eye
Troubles stay locked inside
As they bloody well should

Come on down, hear the trumpet
And hear the lonely lady sing
About the way her man did her
And you think, he did me the same

Let the sax play loud and lonely
Let the drums drift thru your mind
And that piano in the corner
Fill your soul with pain

Are you troubled, come with me
I'll show you the way there
And I'll cry your tears with you
As we drink our beer

But I won't tell you why I'm troubled
Or what I feel in my soul
Cause then you couldn't hear the sad sounds
That fill the room with blues.

It's getting a little crowded
But thats ok too
There's a lot of us fools like us
That are sad and lonely and blue.
