Same Difference
everything makes a difference,
everything makes a same
table for five for dinner,
summer’s intermittent rain
people go wandering on side roads,
people go places at home
and all that is transitory melts
like a big ol’ ice cream cone
everything changes but the changeless,
nothing stays the same
time itself is a healer
some people can’t be tamed
everything makes a difference,
everything makes a same
for some people nothing is everything
and nothing stays the same
every which way you look at it
the seasons live one long loop
close your eyes and you’ll see it,
summer’s intermittent cold soup
some feel it’s all about sharing,
some think it’s all a game
everyone makes a difference,
everyone makes a same
