Fool on the hill

We have been here

so many times

camping in big tents small tents

now in motorhomes

dealing with death intense

surrounded by children

place empty to ourselves

different nations

& now the man he says

end of the month

it is over I retire

my time to sit in the sun

& I want to be rich

buy the place off’f him

say sit & soak it up old man

let me take a turn at the tractor

cutting the grass

picking up the pieces

for holidaymakers

people on the run

but I’m not

& so cannot

so I sit here on his hill

middle of nowhere

knowing now I cannot return

to sit soak up the sun

rest my feet

on another mans land
