Funny World

by Mike Strom

It’s a funny world, funny girl

living laughing, playing skating

on astral skies incumbent lies

about the world we see

don’t skin your knees

just run as you please

through maiden flowers and bees

that swing through the leaves

and can we say can say it’s easy

to be breezy and young

to take and give a song

’tis not wrong

’tis a little long

that song

about those that care

those that share

the minion in the moment

the river flowing by

the spring freshets that flood the marsh

the tippling lilting sighs

of those who are not wise

but enjoy the moments of youth

the births that are in truth

born in the joy we feel

when first we touch the sun

with our virgin tongue.
