THE COUCH - by James Michael Taylor

Today we put the couch out by the road
My daughter said it’s time to let it go
I’d hauled it all the way from Tennessee.
It was the couch my parents gave to me

She brought me a new one in it’s place
It is very nice but takes up more space
We had to move the piano for more room
I had to fetch the dust pan and the broom

Behind the couch were picks and hair and pens
And leaves that had been blown there by the wind
There must have been a mouse that lived therein
And I hope it will come back again

I made a sign that said come to the door
And get the cushions, or they’ll get stole for sure
It was a fact that I could not ignore
I won’t need those cushions any more

It was a couch that made into a bed
I’ve slept on it with every book I’ve read
The springs were shot so I used a board
Now I won’t be needing cushions any more

Behind the couch were picks and hair and pens
And leaves that had been blown there by the wind
There must have been a mouse that lived therein
And I pray that she’ll come back again

Today we put the couch out by the road
My daughter said it’s time to let it go
I’d hauled it all the way from Tennessee.
It was the couch my parents gave to me
