Poisoned with Protection

July 29, 2017

They had the best selection,
They were poisoned with protection

Neil Young,

Safe here in our little bubble
New ideas are too much trouble

We are good and we are true
There’s nothing we can learn from you

We don’t have to hear you speak
Tranquility is what we seek

Our habitat was purified
We weren’t allowed to play outside

Our tender souls demand protection
We can’t survive a mild infection

She’ll be nothing like I pictured her to be

Neil Young, Lookin’ for a Love

Didn’t expect her beauty
From her bones to her skin
Didn’t expect the galaxy
To suddenly spin

Didn’t expect her smile
With its magical power
Didn’t expect her laugh
To resonate for hours

Didn’t expect to quiver
When she looks me in the face
Didn’t expect her poise
Didn’t expect her grace

Didn’t expect her countenance
To fill me up with joy
Didn’t expect to frolic
Like a goofy little boy

Didn’t expect to ever be
This silly and this sappy
Didn’t know there was such a thing
As permanent lovehappy
