I must own to being indigo today

I must own to being pretty blue today,

It was in a fortune cookie yesterday,

A crispy shell, a sugar snap,

Inside a bad-news paper scrap,

Told of meloncholy dark days

On the way.


I must confess to being indigo today,

I’ve been shakin’ but I can’t shake this away,

At first I thought I’d caught a cold,

But it’s pneumonia of the soul,

Take me back to better days

Oh lord I pray.


I must own to being kinda dull today,

Much like a faded photo in a rusty frame,

I’m lacking dynamism,

Eagerness and raw ambition,

Damn that fortune cookie’s crumbly malady.
