Good Stones

Updated: Sep 3

It seems like a million years

Since I picked out a good stone...

Lost a shoe in the mud,

looking for a flat craft that skip

To the far bank, and ripple

Water like rock fish at first light.


Good stones are hard to find in town -

Good for busting windows, breaking into shops

Cracking heads, or throwing at cops...

Good stones are hard to find,

And I found mine.
