FIXER WANNABE

Standard

The other day I was workin’ on some broken stuff,
and the “official” walked into the garage and yelled out
“THIS PLACE IS HELL”
“WHY DO YOU KEEP YOUR HEART OPEN DOWN HERE…..”
“TRYIN” TO FIX SOMETHING THAT AIN’T BROKEN?”
“THE ONLY THING THAT’S BROKEN IS YOU”
“WHY DON’T YOU GET OUT OF THIS PLACE”
“YOU”RE DRIVING ME CRAZY”
Then he just walked out….
but his voice kept right on….
left me kinda wonderin’ about that…..
Got to feelin’ kinda broken in my self….
Love Dog came out,
covered in some stinking brown mess
he’d been rollin’ in..
and asked what all
the commotion was about,
so I told him.
Love Dog just started laughing
(in a Love Dog kinda way)
and he said
“Look around…what do you see?”
“broken stuff” I said.
“Where is your heart at” love Dog asked.
“In the fixin I guess.”
“Well, ain’t this the best place for you…”
“All this broken stuff, and you a fixer”?
“Yeah, I reckon” I said.
“But Love Dog, wouldn’t it feel good
to just walk outta here….no more broken stuff..
no more heart’s a breakin….no more hell…”
“It might feel good for a while” Love Dog said,
“But eventually, your heart would have to breathe”
“Yeah, I recKon” I said.
And that was about the end of it.
That’s why I love Love Dog.
