It could have been me
Anything
Bookbinder, glass cutter, vidar, bricklayer

Anything, anything, anything

Butcher, carpenter or mason, blacksmith, poisoner
It could have been me
Anything
Miller, winemaker, veterinarian, cook, keeper
It could have been me
Anything
Typist and photographer and set designer and geographer
Half-poet and patient
Anything, anything, anything

Dad spoke nicely to me
Mani musicians, school is important
Social, health and regular salary
But I couldn’t do without rock and roll
