Sides

.

It is said of the Rocky Mountains,

from its summit,

you can see a hundred miles.

.

But I have lived here for so long

that I see nothing.

.

It is also said you should never

invite a grizzly to your picnic,

but again, I’ve never known them

to wait for invitations.

.

I met a man once,

and I don’t know still

that I’m glad I did.

.

And once I loved a Rocky Mountain girl,

though once was enough.

.

I guess what I’m trying to say is,

there must be two sides to everything,

to every story;

if not, then maybe three.

.

And if you should argue

there need not be more than one,

then I would ask,

where’s the story?

.

  1. Very charming. I love the part about the Grizzly Girl and Rocky Mountain girl especially. And if someone argues–well, they’ve already proved your point!
