:: Grumpiness - TB
Smile he never does.
Smile he never wants.
And you think a smile it was.
It’s more likely to have been a grimace. Smiling has been a while for him.
It’s like idle chatter.
No time to natter.
Smile what for?
Smile I don’t want to.
Smile it’s a chore.
Smile, no thank you.
:: Being Eleanor Rigby - KC
I tried it many times.
The diary thing.
Then I noticed lonely days
in a frequency I didn’t want to think of,
a frequency I didn’t want people to find out
because everybody feels sorry for the lonely people.
Even The Beatles did.
They came up with Eleanor Rigby. Poor thing.
See what I’m doing here?
I’m feeling sorry for her.
I’m feeling sorry for the poor woman
despite the fact she might have only been a name
someone picked for a fictitious character in a song.
I don’t fully believe it though.
I don’t because she has the looks of many people
I see on the streets everyday
trying to go invisible in the crowd
they have the same taste for clothes,
the same haircut,
they walk at the same pace,
they all have Eleanor's
and my face.
I could be Miss Rigby if I weren’t so loud.
