doing all the doing

he’s got a moan going

I get lonely too

so I remind him

phones go both ways y’know

though he wants to be contacted

one of those people

who think if you love them

you’ll be the one

doing all the doing

& she says plaintive

nobody talks anymore

not a one knocking

on any of my doors

so I remind her

you got shoes for your feet

can take you down any

avenue road or street

can go knocking loud

on anybody’s doors

as she sighs

I don’t do that anymore

& these are the people

who need me & you to chase

do all the work

keep the wheels greased

help them get through

their lives their days

be there

& we have to remind them

we don’t carry their load

lay the world at their feet

we will not be

doing any of that
