The Lake Pontchartrain Causeway… man that’s one long bridge
I drive it every day for my pay - here’s what I see along the way

Here comes:
Corvette Kary, setting pace, he thinks he’s in a race
When Kary’s not waxing his ride, for your safety you'd best pull aside

Petrified Patty, she’s over water and has never learned how to swim
She’s driving a white Lexus, so scared she has no reflexus

Miata Mike, chasing Kary's Vette, not gonna get too far
Trying to convince himself, he didn’t buy a girly car

Watch out for:

Makeup Mary, on cruise-control, wow she’s one of the worst
She loves her new Camry, but her next car might just be a hearse

Yes, that Causeway, can be a long and boring ride
And if you get a flat… there’s no place to pull aside
Oh but that Causeway has its points, take time to see
24 miles of entertainment, and the Northbound way is free

Here comes:

Road Rage Randy, always ****** and he doesn't know why
Today he’s running late, but finds time to escalate

Doughnut Danny, rolling breakfast with tea
Such mechanized efficiency, has a newspaper on his knee

Wackin Wayne, you're kidding me, you thought I couldn't see?  Vibrating Virginia close behind, now we have equality

We've got:

Maypop Marty, thinks tires last forever
Does he even check the air?.... never

Mark The Spark needs a muffler shop, something heavy about to drop.  Comes Innocent Mike on his motorbike too bad he just couldn't stop.

Headphone Harry and his Pandora, he's hear but also... he's not.  He likes his music best, you see, after a few long tokes of his ***.

Fugitive Fred, on the go, at 65 point ooo.  Not a mile to fast or to slow, got to blend in on this bridge you know.

Yes that old Causeway, can be a long and boring ride
And if you get a flat… there’s no place to pull aside
Oh but that Causeway, has its points, take time to see
The mechanized circus on parade, our hilarious humanity

Don’t forget:

Frozen Frita, every rainstorm stops her dead in her track
Then here comes Ramin’ Ron, goin 60, aint too good for her back

No Tie-down Tim, **** flyin’ out of his truck
For everyone behind him, Tim doesn’t give a ****

NPR Nancy, she must be in a “Driveway Moment”
Only problem is, she’s on a god-**** bridge

Texting Theresa, I’ve saved the best for last
The last thing in life she did see, was an idiotic emoji

Lookin’ Lee, that’s me, pretty sad that I’m just as bad
Come join us nuts on the Causeway, might be the most fun you ever had

Ooo! Wee!

Ya got it on my armpit and hair
from my belly, I think you sings it from an egg
the push and pull, the truth and dare
rain-bead pearled in cloudlight bed
was it something I said? Or touched?

All my ex liked to talk about is ***
and wild intricacies like wow, buddy
I'm right here kinda spunky and funny
but his receptacle and receptacle-ees
aren't that interesting to me
oh god this trended
lose me, don't control me
- -  -   -   -fire, come shoot me
                  I'm behind the tree        oOo
                    we can talk about           II
           how much you hate me
           if you are lucky, you may end me  
           might be the right time for you to get rid of 'me'-   -  -  - -
                        this time I am ready, not going to flee               oOo
       oOo                       this time you can take my glee                II
          II                         don't run, but I admit that I am crazy
                                      all the pieces are gone when you left me

  oOo             oOo               oOo                oOo                oOo    
    II             ­      II                   II                     II                     II

My father used to sing this ditty for us:

"Columbus sailed the ocean blue
in 14 hundred 92
He sailed as far as Chicopee Falls
...and there he left his overalls"

When my teacher asked where Columbus landed,
I knew exactly where! Out of my seat, hand waving in the air... "Oooo ooo me! I know!"

"Yes, Liz..."

"Chicopee Falls!!" ...and I argued the accuracy, VEHEMENTLY.

At least Chicopee was a genuine Native Algonquin word, meaning violent waters.

Thanks Dad!
did anyone seem to have the time
its too far away now to know for sure
my baby's alright
she shows me the stars and the moon at night
points up at em with her little finger and says

I stood on the stage with 4 other people
Saxophones in our hands
We laughed and bantered

I looked out at the sea of people
To find you
With your goofy smile and your running jacket as a shirt

I smiled
And you smiled too

And after that performance
We played a game
With two other people

And we talked
And spilt tea
Which was great

And made jokes about the die
“I need rope to save me!”
“Ooo!! *****!!”

And we joked about the oldest there
How he was 21 and had a balloon tied to his overalls
“You’re like the little kid in the store who runs away easily and that’s how your parents keep track of you!”

We laughed
And joked
And had deep conversations

About love
About hurting
About school

And I realized when I was with them
I was so stupid
For trying to stay at that hell of a school
With fake people and friends
And an unsafe environment

When I could’ve moved here
And made friends who care about me
And found someone who makes me feel like I’ve never felt before

I realized I just needed a new start
And a new life
To be the best person I could be
“If I wasn’t wearing overalls I could beat your ***** in a thicciness contest!!” -Tony 2k18

I wear my
Like a French perfume
A heady mix of
Compassion and

Revelling in my
Makes me not a
*** object
Revelling in my
Makes me not
Makes me not
It makes me exclaim in
Ooo! La! La! La!

I salute my
As a work of art

A work of art
To be
And yes!

Are entranced by my
Sweet fragrance and
The nonchalant air of
Je ne sais quoi!
With which I carry myself.

A strong, feminine
Gracious woman
Is a sight to behold
Whatever her size.

She brings
Glory to God
Whose Handiwork
She is.

Oooo! La! La! La!

No longer a mirage cause you are my reality.
Ooo, I have seen you from afar.(from afar)
And instant-ly , you won my heart.

Although you didn't know it then.
Or that you soon would be my closest friend.
But notice that ring upon your hand.

Things went according to my plans.
I'm a happy man.(happy man)

Love always been a mystery.
Since the days of Adam and Eve.
And they was instructed to go out and multiply.(multiply)
Oh, I'm a happy guy.

Who would have ever thought?
That you would be here with me.
Cause we always seem to disagree.
But notice that ring upon your hand.
I'm a happy man.

Yes, now and forever.
Forever and ever.
Cause we are together.
Now and forever.

I keep..
Minding my own business.
in the kitchen doin the dishes..
minding my own business..
keep trying ta forget..
Not wanting to digress..
To where I feel your absence and my loneliness.
Seeing your conditions..
Reminded in my visions
I see your hands through my own hands.
I remember the simpliest things..
Even though your absent finally from my dreams.
I've been seeing you even down to the basics of you.

The unstraight lazy walk the deep sound in how you talk.
I'm still minding my own business I must confess.
I'm a little wounded yet healing.. Coping well with my feelings.
Missing those interpersonal roles.. naughty ways to console.
So old and foundational..
With you so long that our chatting.
It used to get kinda confrontational.
So close I don't think you ever truly knew.
The closeness now makes me blue.
But right now i'm just kinda tired of spiritually seeing..Y.O.U!

I really don't like it.. and i really wanna forget..
