He’s Been Told

He’s been told for all of his life
to live in the reality of all the strife.
The problem is that for all that advice,
after all the years, he still finds it nice
to live in Shangri-La and Brigadoon
places he would choose to live so soon
but they are only places of which to swoon —
as far away as the lonely call of the loon.
They may be metaphors for eternal bliss,
but without those metaphors he would miss
those who had gone onto eternal bliss
and so, he watches TCM and cries with the old hits.
