Straighten Up & Fly Right

“What’d you do this time?”

Joey’s wife asked as she cried

When she found he was doing time in jail one night

He says:

“Baby, I can’t lie, but I’d rather not specify,

I’ve put you through enough already,

and it’s eating at my heart & mind”

He further says,

“Baby, please don’t cry, I did the crime, I’ll do my time,

but I’ve learned my lesson, once I’m out again,

you’ll see a brand new man

you can count on this promise

I give you my word tonight,

I will straighten up and fly right

Infinite Complexity

One thing I know, one thing I see

Is people have infinite complexity

We’re not all one thing, or all another

but a mixture

A mixture of our Love, and hope

Our joy & sorrow,

we’re shaped by our yesterdays & tomorrows

A mixture of pleasure & pain, a mixture of caution

& wanting to spread our wings

A mixture of a million and one+ other things
