Brass Ring

It’s all or nothing

most of the time


everything’s cool

then turns on a dime

before you know it

you’re six feet deep


wondering why you spent

half your life asleep

you're behind the plow


they always told you

it’d work out somehow

now time has flown

on ragged wings


and you’re still reaching

for that brass ring


and you never heard

the woodthrush sing
