Home is where the mind is

Wed, 01/18/2017 - 13:50 -- rudym

I've been everywhere,

Although my body ain't been here or there

My mind has traveled everywhere.

I lived on the South Side for nine years

And the North Side for eight,

But that really ain't right. 

I lived in New Orleans with the sounds of trumpets

And lived in Key West with Jimmy Buffet.

I lived in Cali with Snoop Dogg

And drank a Pilsner in Prague. 

I lived in Germany and listened to Bach

And ate some Pad Thai in Bangkok.

Although my body is sediment,

My mind is culturally elegant,

And one day, my body will be everywhere.
