Chairman

Chairman on the road.Sweeping between curbs and cones.

Fingering a tired cup clinking all you own.

Chairman on the road.

King, for a while, on this giving mile.

Between lights hands passing you privilege.

Chairman on the road.

Damp chilling night air.

You sit there and at me stare.

Chairman on the road.

Empty, grinning smile.

Fingers stroking your withered brow.

Chairman on the road.

Digging quickly for some coins.

Red brews green, in my rear view are you see,.

Chairman on the road.

What humble bridge call you home.

How far from sanity can one roam.

Chairman on the road.

Wealthy for a moment.

Bills linger, then filter through life stained fingers.

Chairman on the road.

Deep set eyes piercing a passing soul.

Another, woman or guy, giving, so a soul won’t die.

Chairman on the road.

Know not where you go.

Often find you on my way home.

Chairman on the road.

Praying not to see you as me.

Hurting, hoping, next time you I won’t see.

Chairman on the road.

Again released from traffics snarl.

There you sit, regal, miss matched shoes as I pass.

Chairman on the road.

Bravery fails this simple heart.

All to few flow offerings, to linger in your cup.

Chairman on the road.

Eyes find mine lingering to long.

Smiling, saluting, turning, wheeling, you are gone.

Chairman on the road.
