Short Terms, Long Terms
In short terms, it’s a long walk.
It’s a long way over and a long way down,
a long way up and a long way around.
A bright way there and a bright way back,
and bright way along the never ending track.
The twists and turns never seem to end,
the simple wood planks never seem to bend.
But trust in me when I say
that there will be a better day
when that road can be better traveled
over the talkative river that babbles.
So keep your lantern close on this coaster
and keep him closer,
because in short terms,
it’s a long walk,
and you’ll need someone to talk
