New Orleans - March 20, 2020

i don't know how to tame things, only how to be tame 
and then only sometimes and i'll be the judge of that 
just like you are and just like you 

if i were king i'd say 

get me a sports team 

some on-field drama 
some amazing feat 
some vertical jump 
some questionable move 
to argue with no consequence 

get me a cold beer 

some sun on my skin, some body 
of water, some laughter, 
some story to share 
with no room for gloom 

get me all the distractions, i'd say 
this one and that 

and take away my phone 
take away all the phones, I'd say 

and with one sweep of the scepter 
we'd all go outside and play
