Ms. Parton, Did You Have to Go There?
I was visited by Dolly Parton on my way to work today,
And now I am a bit worried because I didn’t have my cup of ambition,
And I have to face distracted drivers applying makeup and texting on the streets on my way to barely making a living.
Ms. Parton said it would drive me crazy if I let it.
I might go crazy waiting for my ship to come in as I deal with those more crazy than myself.
We all are,
You know. We have to be to survive our nine to five.
So, I rumble down the road, in my ’96 dream, bobbing to Parton’s frothy concoction of a melody, wondering how this day will go,
And wondering whether there is at least one cup of ambition left for me,
