Heart and Soul



Country folk don’t like Catholic tradition.
They would like something more natural.
Catholic means Universal.
America is a pyramid scheme.
And it beams.
Africa runners run with their hearts.
One girl said that I was all heart.
No I don’t want to freeze to death.
Together in the middle of the night
dance around the kitchen
in the refrigerator light
Who’s better:  Jewel or Taylor Swift?
Slight edge to Jewel Kilcher I think.
Lucky to have both.
