two backpacks

In the absolute silence
of a windless desert
hot sun, hot stones
hot sand, no water
a man sweated
carrying two backpacks

Oh where is that silence
in the crowded city
in my crowded mind
so rich, so full
cool rain, cool trees
such a beautiful life

Helping his buddy
he had left behind
carry the gold
they had never found
every day an adventure
in my heart

A ship full of pirates
sailing for fun
life so serious
we better party anon
the fish, the poor fish
just swim along
