Day 57 – Amateur Journalism

So many people have pens in their hands
and cotton balls shoved in their ears,
so eager to tell a story they never heard

Sure, it left a mark on you but
you didn’t leave a dent in them;
their world never needed a Travelin’ Jack
to come through and make it real

That gracious town which opened its doors
then swiftly kicked you out should be left to rest;
its beauty didn’t shine for you so
don’t claim it for yourself.
