What’s killing us, Babe?

What got us

all torn up

and going crazy?

Is it the passing

of loved ones and time?

Or is it something

we can’t define?


What is it, Babe?

Is it the wars,

or politics,

or something

not so obvious,

like this

never ending winter?


I think

it might be time

to take our lives

away from all this,

but how far can we go?

Just say the word, Babe.

I’ll quit my job

and we can hit the road.


Get out there

and live,

wild and honest.

Sow an new harvest

somewhere far away

from what’s killing us, Babe.
