you should wear with pride the scars on your skin
they’re a map of the adventures and the places you’ve been
“praise god,” he said lifting his drink.

hey woody guthrie! hey marc chagall!
there’s far too many of you to thank you all
but i wanna talk about the gift that you gave
i’m so happy about the gift that you gave!
(a friend of mine once said….
“if you’re ever around when someone dies,
look up and wave, they’ll get a big kick out of it.”)
if i should die in a car wreck,
may i have van morrison on my tape deck
