Bearded Ballads 20/30: MILST

I now know
how you feel.

This is worse
than being asked
to play country music.
after covering
“Story of My Life.”

Or Springsteen
considering the last three
were his
you just failed to pay attention.

“Downtown Train”
Tom Waits, not Rod Stewart,
sung to a bunch of doctors
who have yet to notice
we’ve repeated the same line
ten times now.

Being begged
to play “Wagon Wheel”
three times
by three different women
in under an hour
gets old the first time asked.
