Migrant from the Ridge
By Phillip Coffey
Did today’s labor send me over the edge?
Am I having a Bob Dylan moment?
Been busy for a spell - using sling blade, cooking and washing and stuff
’Migrant From the Ridge
“Not today,” said the Pauper to the Prince
turning up turnips in the Autumn season
Taking the reins the Pauper relents
Then he laughs for no apparent reason
The Migrant from the ridge looks about
Finding all these “Shucks” in my seeds
So much chaff, worthlessness, ’no account
All our people bleeding, so many needs
I know you understand why I put Shucks in quotations.
Try to keep it G-rated.
