“Roll Around” (A Song, coming out of Lockdown)

Verse 1


I like to kick the table, to see their eyes roll around,

I like to tell a fable, then they say “so droll and profound”

I like it when I steal their light, to watch them want to brawl,

I like it when we keep in touch, both the low and “mighty” tall!




So, let’s roll around with feeling,

Both in love, and in bleeding,

No time to think of angels now,

Let’s just continue to roll around.


Verse 2


I like to say rude words, to see kids become aware,

I like to smoke those herbs, to see their nostrils flare,

I like it when I take their time, thus to me, they wish to learn,

I like it when things “change”, before everything starts to burn!


Verse 3


I like to be the prankster, to see them question me,

I like to be the Rockstar, to see their ears absorbing,

I like it when there is no light, as I can go about unseen,

I like it when there is no time, I have the right to be obscene!

    And now the next hymn in the Service: No.473: 'I like to kick the table'. heehee.
    They'll boot us out if we kick the Communion table/altar!

      Bless you orchidee, having a little laugh now imagining this being sung in a place of worship!

      I bet you've accidentally kicked the table, after too much communion wine! Haha!

      Thanks for the read, and I hope all is well!

        Thank you for the read Andy, and I will hold you to that, and of course a drink will be on it's way back to you.

        I hope all is well!

        'Both in love, and in bleeding,'..
        'in' - bleeding?
        yikes, that's a hard no for me... lol
        a fun read, thanks for sharing dear poet

        • AuburnScribbler

          Thanks for the read L. B. Mek, and we all bleed sometimes, either it be physically or mentally, but the love will get us through.

          You are very welcome, and I hope that all is well!
