It is what is it is,
And other trite phrases
A familiar friend, a rainy drive
As rueful and honest, cathartic and glad
Well this is just a simple song
Everybody’s minding their own business a bit too much. My best friend at work has been asked to resign. My other friends are late. Some are stuck in a traffic jam. My driver is exceeding his limits. The construction workers are hammering on our heads. There is no water. Rain is this place’s only chance of redemption.
Regrets collect like old friends
You were always an iconic figure in our family. There were jokes and stories of plots and investments, of your friends in Finland, and the nightclubs and bicycle rides in the cold. There were women who wanted to marry you, but you never settled for any of them. I saw you on a cooking show on TV once, and I believe you won a microwave on it!
Dont you just hate:
How far can my car go if its on the last petrol blinking light?
