Nine Canadian Geese

Nine Canadian Geese

we flew for years heading somewhere
in the same direction or so it appeared
but we were all just practicing
for the day we’d head off into our destinies
some chased the power of gold
some raised families continuing the flock
some drove off the cliffs of addiction
some chased wine, women and song
the leader of the band now gone
his proud family name will carry on
tradition lost, yet he’ll think it odd
more than half ended up devoted to God…
