Hands

Some hands rock cradles
some hands rock boats
some hands just throw rocks
or grab you by the throat

Some hands pull you down
some hands pick your pocket
some hands hold the door open
some hands try to lock it

when you’ve fallen
some hands lift you up
when you’re thirsty
some hands hold a cup

when everything
just seems too much
the best hands just offer
a loving touch

Comprehensive List

It might rain, or it might not
it might be cool or it might be hot
it might get dark a little later on
but it may brighten up along towards dawn
If you want a comprehensive list
of all the things I am sure of
you can put it on a post-it note
taxes, death, and a mother’s love
The left might vote against the right
who’re trying to crush them with all their might
what they don’t understand they might call fake
How much are we supposed to take
If you want a comprehensive list
of all the things I am sure of
you can put it on a post-it note
taxes, death, and a mother’s love
A pretty woman might turn some heads
a handsome man might find her bed
but if one is just hoping to be fed
the other might wish they were dead
If you want a comprehensive list
of all the things I am sure of
you can put it on a post-it note
taxes, death, and a mother’s love
Your mother won’t care how you vote
she just wants you to be healthy
it won’t matter to your mother
if you’re poor or wealthy
might be ugly as a stump
you’re beautiful to her
she’ll always be on your side
that is certain sure
If you want a comprehensive list
of all the things I am sure of
you can put it on a post-it note
taxes, death, and a mother’s love
