David Subacchi – I Know

I Know

What do you think she said
Pushing the paper towards me
I raised an eyebrow
The election results she said
I shrugged

Everyone says that
I suppose so
Will it affect us
Oh yes
Everyone says that too
But what do you think

I looked across the bay
The tide yawned
And dug another few feet
Out of the beach
I think carry on I said
We only get so long

And besides
Summer is out there
Just beyond the horizon
Let’s haul it in
Not drive it away
With long faces

You’re old she said
I smiled
Oh yes
All wine and poetry
All you’re good for
I know.
