This One’s For You

To the asshole

Who took the plant …

This one’s for you,

Realizing that you are probably

A disturbed lonely fool

This one’s for you,

Those who get pleasure

From short changing children,

Those who let their dogs

And chuckle from a distance

When a little old lady

With cataracts and a cane

Stumbles on through,

This one’s for you.

Some said dreamers,


But we smiled to ourselves

And bought lottery tickets

And long shot investments

And wrote notes that read,

What is a life without dreams?
