Day 297

23 Oct

8 days to Halloween…

“What’s he building in there?
What the hell is he building in there?
He has subscriptions to those magazines…
He never waves when he goes by
He’s hiding something from the rest of us…
He’s all to himself…
I think I know why…

He took down the tire swing from the Peppertree
He has no children of his own you see…
He has no dog
And he has no friends and his lawn is dying…
And what about all those packages he sends.

What’s he building in there?
I’ll tell you one thing
He’s not building a playhouse for the children.
What’s he building
In there?”

What’s He Building – Tom Waits
