Crazy Old Fucker

like a bird on the wire
like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free

Bird on a Wire/Leonard Cohen

Had an interesting experience with the local Young Republicans..
Just on my way to the Farmers' Market Saturday morning. As is my habit, I had a CD playing loudly..I once told my boys that some songs are just made to be played loud, or not at all..but I digress.
Sitting at a light, windows down, singing along with Jimmy Buffett..hadn't noticed the car next to me at first, a BMW with the YR sticker in a side window..some kind of rappish jumble pouring out of their of course, my first inclination was to turn Jimmy up..
That got me a surly look from the blondes in the Beemmer..
In an entertaining turn of events, the next song started, and it was what Jimmy calls his love song from a slightly different point of view...
So as I sang along:
"So, Barmaid, bring a pitcher,
another round of brew
Honey, why don't we get drunk and screw."
I heard.."Turn that shit down!" from the YR car..
Such a mouth on her..
Being the gentleman that I am, I turned and nodded, gave her a toothy grin, and turned up the volume..
As the light changed, and the chorus returned..
I heard her turn to the driver and say..
"Crazy Old Fucker"..
And all I could think of was..
Yes I am..

I'm a piece of work, I'm iron and lace
I'm shy, I'm right up in your face
I'm all dumbfounded, stubborn as an ass
Sharp as an arrow in a pile of glass.
I'm a sweetheart, genius, reckless jerk.
Lord, have mercy, I'm a piece of work.

Piece of Work/Will Kimbrough

You cannot conceive the many without the one.
