WordPress – #Daily Prompt – Rube

Sometimes you just need it to be 5 O’clock somewhere

To watch the sun set and feel the world turning there

Putting aside a day that feels strangely like an intimation

That you feel me a rube compared to your sophistication

I’ll tell you plainly that I am just fine when you say I’m simple

My deepest thoughts float past like a watery sort of temple

Where I worship God and live in the moment on each wave

As I have been and will be from my cradle to my grave

You dazzle me with all your intellectual high lights

That trouble your soul into way too many sleepless nights

Sure enough, call my bluff, break me down against the wall

But when it is all said and done, I wonder will you ever recall

Those times before you pushed your shove and we were done

All those memories when we surfed, loved and had our fun?
