“BALLAD OF THE PEARL STREET RAMBLERS”
I took a trip down memory lane,
To days in my rear view.
Now, none of us remain the same,
Life changed our point of view.
Those days, we saw the road ahead.
Certain, that we would win.
A future bright with no owed debt,
A treasure trove of sin.
We all hung out and busted balls,
All bastards to a T.
The Prescott schoolyard free-for-alls,
Still haunt my memory.
We lost a friend along the way.
In years there will be more.
Lifelong friendships? Who is to say,
How long they will endure?
Street corner kids just passing time,
Or time, just passed us by.
A passing thought of youthful prime,
Ends with a trailing sigh.
Of all the times both come and gone,
I will remember those.
Pearl Street Ramblers, Ramble On!
Until, we take repose.
