The Blue Condition: Poems 1 To 5
Author: Colin Stewart
Trace the origin of the blues
to the very first hunter with bad news
thinking of the one that got away
and left him hungry for another day!
The passengers are silent while holding their fare
on a carousel that's broken in need of repair
and without perpetual motion who do we consult
when our planetary operation has come to a halt!
Love didn't give him a proper choice
to raise his tiny undeveloped voice
and with a life he couldn't possibly choose
this baby was born into the blues!
No one there to retrieve my ball
or out of habit to return my call.
You never think it will come to an end.
He wasn't just a dog he was my friend!
Uplifted by the buoyancy of good news
all these smiling faces offer vital clues
when photo albums are a format most people choose
because who really wants to document the blues?
