What, Me Worry?

When I was a little one my Dad would pick up his guitar and play me the Hank Williams tune “Everything’s Ok”

Last night I thought of this song and it inspired me to write the following:

WHAT ME WORRY?

Organic pricing concerns

Still below chemotherapy

Pure but pompous

My mind starts to atrophy

 

Hay prices have doubled

What are we to feed

Without a bull

Our Cows won’t breed

 

Lambs are popping

30 of five hundred so far

Feeding them thru winter

Sure will be hard

 

Hawks been eating chickens

When they get out

Guard dog watching

Had egg on his snout

 

Weather turning colder

Winter’s on its way

With the drought grass stopped growing

We didn’t make any hay

 

Turkeys getting big

Gorging themselves now

Orders rolling in

But we have lots more to sell

 

Customer just complained

Beef Ribs too short

All I could think to say

He needed a longer fork

 

 

 

 

With thirty five pages

All needing to be signed

Organic Inspection went well

Just lost my mind

 

Our main write up

Was no complaint log

Its as if Mr. Short Ribs

Was sent to us from God

 

Billy goats are following

The Nannies all round

Making crazy noises

Though none in estrus can be found

 

That’s cause the Nannies

Are now twice the size

From the Billies last go round

Makes you roll your eyes

 

Both wells went dry

The new one drilled no water came forth

Four hundred feet down

Nothing but dry earth

 

Hauling water from town

Cost enough to make you cry

Five thousand gallons per week

An ocean by the time I die

 

When half the markets shut down

I let most of the help go

The ones I kept around

Half the time, don’t show

 

With bad home mortgage loans

The local bank almost went bust

Leaves you to often wonder

Who all you can trust

 

Things always go right

Things always go wrong

I have been keeping track

So I could write this song
