 I’ll take Cats and Roosters Please


    When I lived up north
    Though frenzied and busy
    Life pushed your buttons
    It could only make you dizzy
    The decision I made was absolutely intentional
    No one understood
    For me it was so very unconventional
    I know I was stressed
    And about to implode
    No one should ever carry that load
    What could I do after so many years on “the hill”
    I could go crazy or take some magic pill
    So I took a year off for experimentation
    Some times it was good
    Oft times self flaggilation
    But I grew some and played some
    Tried to put my mind at rest
    I had to do something
    To make my last 50 the best
    I prayed and I prayed
    And like Quixote I did quest
    Where did I end up
    Well of course it’s Key West
    So I replaced 24/7/365
    With an island so quirky
    Hey at least I’m alive
    So from the northern climes I moved
    At least I won’t freeze
    What’s now on my menu
    I’ll take cats and roosters please.
