      ONE OF US

      When my neighbor
      was graduating high school
      this was a lumber & fishing town
      So he had to pick one or the other
      He didn't want to spend his life
      bobbing like a cork
      at the mercy of the ocean
      so he went to work in the woods

      Right off they told him to do something
      that involved walking in a certain area
      but as he was walking
      branches kept falling all around him
      How do you guys do it? he asked
      Every time one hits I jump
      Just forget about it
      They told him
      or you won't last in this work
      He wound up working
      for the school district as a mechanic

      Years later he throws this barbeque
      we go to & there we listen
      as another guest shares
      with us this good advice
      When you're dealing with people
      just try to remember
      that lots of them
      have to take drugs
      just to feel
      like we do all the time
      & you'll save yourself
      a lot of trouble
