"Bad News"


Bad News
{Lessons of my learning series}


 


It's said it's never good to hear bad news
on an empty stomach
such as the rolling clouds
and clashing thunder

well as it stands,
my stomach's full today
doesn't feel any better
such as the rolling clouds
and clashing thunder

should I have been standing up
or sitting down
such as the harsh winds blow up
from down under

maybe I could have laid me low
in a ball on the ground
such as the harsh winds blow up
from down under

I could have stretched me out
with arms spread yonder
such as the last breath taken
before my soul fled asunder

what could I have done better
my mind keeps a wonder
such as the last breath taken
before my soul fled asunder
