That Crusoe Must Have Thunk

I have the kind of

Knowledge you get

From spending too much time alone

Books are my solace

When I am lonely to the bone

I am a dreamer

I am a drunk

I am thinking all the thoughts

That Crusoe must have thunk

I have the kind of old soul

That runs away from pain

I know all about the price of love

And its small and subtle gains

I am a dreamer

I am a drunk

I am thinking all the thoughts

That Crusoe must have thunk

I might have misgivings

Along the way

But the train’s already moving

And the fare has been paid

Some come on now

All you words and songs

Give me that substitute

For which my soul longs

  1. Hey, Gene, nice to see you are working on brightening the blogosphere. You might remember me from such films as “Freshman year in Cavanaugh Hall,” and “Farmers are dumber than you think.” I fiddle around at the blogging, but don’t do much in the way of original writing. You’ve got me whipped there.
