Good Morning!

Good Morning! Good morning!

It's what we're calling global warming.

Wake up to the coming cosmic day

or we'll end up dying for a past 

that wasn't working anyway.

 

We've all been dreaming

and the cocks have certainly been sreaming

and the clocks have ticked us

into a life long coffee break,

 

and the coffee has tricked us

into thinking we're awake.

    yes, it is worth it to let the heart be touched by everything.

    Falling in love again. Maybe I have been scared to. Maybe I am ready to take it on. This time, lovingly.
