Comin’ Home
by ©Richard Budig 1996

I’d’ve been home sooner
‘cept this road is longer
than I remember
Tail lights keep
Disappearin’ into the night
Just red blurs in the rain
So I keep walkin’
Puttin’ one foot down
Pickin’ up the other
An’ thinkin’ o’ you
An’ wishin’ I was home
Bumper sticker goes by
Says’ “I’m goin’ home,
How ‘bout you?”
I join the rain
An’ begin to cry
Billboard asks, “Do you
Know where your kids are?”
An’ I reply, “Hell, I don’ even
Know where I am.”
Up ahead’s a roadside phone,
But the phone’s gone,
An’ it’s rainin’ harder now
‘sides I don’t have a quarter
So it don’ matter no how
All I know f’ sure
‘s I’m comin’ home
One way ‘r ‘nother
I’m comin’ home t’ you

Great poem you have here, kind of sad, and with my knowledge in school brings to mind the migration of farmers from the Dust Bowl in the Great Depression. Great piece, the dialect used was a great touch
