Owed To Two Old Goats

It’s a metaphor… or is it? 😉

The Blarney Stone - Matlida Waits For Her Od Goat

Owed To Two Old Goats
by Michael Romani

Two loving goats who need their own page
She's waiting on the floor; he's up on the stage 
Nothing better than fifty shades of grazing goats
Don't you know that she's naked under her coat

Sometimes she gets so lost feeling a bit forlorn
As she smiles at him, thankful he was born
But wondering why he keeps himself so busy
She twirls round in her dance keeping dizzy

It's all for the sake of keeping romance alive
Even if it's a night out or playing some dive
The time that they manage to spend together
Somehow makes their lives that much better

She knows every word to every song he's ever sang
Because he's all her world in the bell that rang
Wanting to spend time looking into his sweet eyes
She finds the will to somehow believe all his alibis

There is just something about his ram-stein head
And in all the bad stories and jokes he's said
That sharing a nibble or two with quibbles so few
Reaches through the metaphors into something true

It's all for the sake of keeping romance alive
Even if it's a night out or playing some dive
The time that they manage to spend together
Somehow makes their lives a little better

Watching them at a distance as I often do
I find in their lives a bit of a hashtag #clue
Something inside all these quiet observations
About finding happiness amidst minor devastations

It is the people who love us who make our journey
The one worth taking in stride for you and for me
I sit here on my stool watching the love float out
Not longer in question, love is the remover of doubt
