Black and White

You can do what you like
Take a ride on a hipster bike
Wave to the old lady
Leaning next to a rotted out door

You can do what you like
Wonder into a dramatized bar fight
Take a bottle into the bathroom
Climb out the window and run for your life

You can do what you like
Climb the statue of liberty with all your might
Jump off with a bungee cord
Pray to God the cops do not see you tonight

You can do what you like
Prance around in a bear costume with delight
Attend a playoff baseball game
Get escorted out but obtain 30 seconds of fame

You can do what you like
Choose a resting place, it is your forthright
Attend your own funeral
As a ghost, zombie, or an angel is quite alright

You can do what you like
Go down in history as writer who had such delight
To tell their stories and about them and others
Never giving a reason for a plot but received a green light

You can do what you like
With your life
And never agree with the saying
Everything is black and white


I was listening to the new Paul McCartney album called New. I think everyone should give it a listen. It is one of my favorite albums of the year and I'm not even done with it yet. I was humming this poem/song to a tune off the album.

I hope you enjoy!
