Soundtrack For The Long Ride - Poem by Warren Augustus de Guzman

One man short of the famous wonder wall,
The stage with its immortal curtain call.
Show must go on.

In summer’s heat a midnight college ball,
A drunken grade school lover’s maul.
Show must go on.

Speed all but down to a little crawl,
A melancholy wholehearted bawl.
Show must go on.

A love lost in the heat of the fall.
A flick of an old maid’s shawl.
The Show must go on.
