sHe lost the way to tomorrow.

(but) All sHe found…
(was a) Map from the past.

Pick Me Up

Pick Me Up
by Wayne Gagnon (for Terri)

Pick me up, Terri…
…in your little blue car.
Make sure the top’s down…
…we need NOT go far.

We don’t have to speed…
…just keep that car steady.
I’ll sing Mud(dy) Waters…
…you, Helen Reddy.

I’ll buy the coffee…
…you just arrive.
The road, she is calling…
…let’s go for a drive.

Cowboy in Florida

Cowboy in Florida - Wayne Gagnon

Cowboy in Florida
by Wayne Gagnon (for Sy)

Down on the shore-ida…
…was a cowboy in Florida.

NOT in a saddle?
NOT high on a mountain?
(no…) JUST sipping blue drinks…
…in a chair by a fountain.

NOT riding with cattle?
NOT out on the plain?
(no…) JUST nibbling on soft-serve…
…(and) there’s no sight of rain.

Down on the shore-ida…
…was a cowboy in Florida.

NOT breaking his back?
NOT tossin’ (bails of) hay?
(no…) JUST taking a nap…
…in the mid of the day.

NOT shoveling the SH-tuff…
…that horses will drop?
(no…) JUST lounge in the sun…
…as the waves never stop.

Down on the shore-ida…
…was a cowboy in Florida.

Basketball Mom

Basketball Mom (for Linda)
by Wayne Gagnon

Basketball in one hand…
…coffee in the other.
Who’s that at the bus stop?
“Dude, is that your MOTHER?”

Hair is neatly coiffed…
…a lovely blouse and skirt.
Problems with the pumps…
…they’re sinking in the dirt!

Not to good at hook shots….
…and layups ain’t so grand.
Hey! YOU try shooting hoops…
…with a coffee in one hand!

Say “g’bye” to kiddies…
…off to earns some pay.
Leave behind the bus stop…
…mother starts her day.

Basketball in one hand…
…coffee in the other.
Who’s that at the bus stop?
“Dude, is that your MOTHER?”
