"Kicking Rocks and Skimming Stones" by Eric Wayne Flynn

Updated on April 18, 2014

"Kicking Rocks and Skimming Stones"

Down by the lake on a walk all alone

Down by the lake kicking rocks and skimming stones

I see people at play

Out in the middle of the blue, I see you

Your'e playing too

Everyones got a beer and the music is loud

Pop poison polluting my brain waves

The sun is shining

Possibility is all you can see on a clear day

Time is on your side and so is life

It is grand and who would take that away

But believe me it goes

Jumping out of the boat and down to the deep

Underneath the party lies a demon at sleep

Waiting to devour you

It's already took a chunk outta me

But I'm a warrior, are you?

What happens when reality smacks the shit of you?

Leaving you out cold on a boat in the lake

Life is a game, a game of chance, it's a chance I take

By the throat and tell it like it is, was and will be

Im the dirtiest poet alive, I'm filthy

Step up to the plate

Leftovers out to lunch

Going to brunch and buying the new Galaxy

The one that's got a huge screen with megapixels

It makes all our shitty lives look glamorous

Im ready for my close up where the camera is?

Back on shore taking a picture of you

A Polaroid that proves I'm out of touch

Your'e out of view

I see my friend the one i thought i


That the monster sleeps in the lake

But soon

Soon enough it awakes

Gobbling up all the pretty things

Isn't it beautiful...
