Achilles-esque weaknesses

She is worried about her soul

but her feet hurt again

She is truly struggling she claims

to find something dumb like a man

and as she limps from bar to bar

disguised as a neophyte

she can hardly stand on her worried and uncultured

fragile feet

and they call it a sole because its the soul

who cares if its corny

that funky sole makes you stand and begin to

start that journey again

forward you command

who else is listening?

He is worried about his soul

but his legs give way again

he was truly agile in ’82 when Reagan was still alive

and he is perpetrating like politics will make him saved

and as he crouches for his crutch

his opinions don’t give up

and his future seems so bleak

and they call it a sole because its the soul

Who cares if you don’t get the joke

and the man is the saddest end

until he starts that journey again

who else is listening

when you are

sick and in love.
