Truth went out of fashion quicker than the flattop once we were tempted by the alternative. Maybe it was always overrated. Maybe we're just drawn to the ones who tell us what we want to hear.
Cloudy eyes make it easy for old folks to ignore the present and dance in the past. Tears screw up that plan. Daylight savings time and another hour gone. Some of us don't have it to spare.
Maybe I should have written longer songs.
