The Good Girls, The Wonderful Life

written by: Robert Allen Beckvall

 

Shoes drop on the lanai, after a day of teaching, coaching, mentoring
Or, just forgetting a bad one

A good wife made my lunch
A good girl did her homework
A good partner put the ball away
A good island warmed my soul with sunshine and ocean spray

If I didn’t listen, read, or debate the government bully bastards

I would just think:
What a simple, little, wonderful life I have
On dates with my wife
Or, a kid to the heights

Says I:
“You can’t fool me, it is a wonderful life.”
