Come Singing Like a Song

Or dancing on the bar
Or from another country
Or caked in mud
Or running from the cops
Or cleaning up the slop
Or born in a manger
Or giving up your home
Or landing on your feet
Or in another time
Or writing in lines
Or running to a meeting
Or holding up the world
Or staying home from work
Or killed in the war
Or related to an aunt
Or dying of the plague
Or kneeling at the altar
Or feeling like a stone
Or falling from grace
Or falling out a window
Or living in a cave
Or homeless in New York
Or going to the bank
Or curing a disease
Or going with a lover
Or weeping to yourself
Or sleeping in a tree
Or flying over water
Or guessing at the outcome
Or knowing all along
