Old Dog

When the only one not having fun
was the one who paid the bills
he got up one morning
and headed for the hills
it may have been cold-blooded
it may have been tough love
it may have been giving up
it may have been all the above

when the monkeys and the circus
conspire to make you sick
it’s time for the old dog
to learn another trick

he still prays that one day
it will work out for all involved
in the meantime he just hopes
that he may be absolved
so he dodges and he ducks
gets a lick in when he can
wondering if this will ever
evolve into a plan
