The Last Rhyme



Smiling the same smile
Making the same mistakes
Walking the same path
Singing the same songs

Dreaming the same dreams
Loving the same girl
Breathing the same air
Righting the same wrongs

Signing the last truce
Reaching the last fork
Holding the last hand
Casting the last line

Waltzing the last waltz
Humming the last tune
Paying the last bill
—rhyming the last rhyme
