Sky High

There was a place & time

When you could get

ice cream soda for a dime

Yes, a mere ten cents,

and a hotel room for rent

At $6 bucks a night

That’s no lie, & I

Have to wonder why

Everything these days

Is sky high, it just doesn’t quite

Seem right

Indelible Impressions

1977, a plane was going down, 

Headed like a wrecking ball

for the Mississippi ground

Several musicians in their prime 

Doing everything they could to get out of it alive

I wasn’t even born yet,

but I’ve heard about it enough times

Things like that tend to haunt the mind,

I found it absolutely terrifying

It is one of the prime reasons for my own fear of flying
