Life in the Country
by Andrew j. Williamson c 2003/2016

Life in the country is very romantic
lets leave the city for a spell
we'll raise cows sheep goats and lamas
we'll make bread clothes and grow limas
we'll go to town drive round in a cart and mule
— and do home school

'Cos, it'll be a wonder when we're pumping water
from a well we dug ourselves with a rustic pump
And we won't pollute the oceans
no we'll never flush our night soil
we'll feed the earth when we take a dump
let's find a little fixer upper, catch a trout or two for supper
our skin will glow sufficient for ourselves
— and ignore the smell

Life in the country really is quite special
apart from all the little aches and pains
finish digging in the garden where there's no potatoes
turn around it's time to unblock the drains
and the pig's a super-pooper
and the compost pile's no hotter
and the chickens just stare at you for days
— and never lay

And the guests that came for summer grumble for a little peace and quiet
not to re-paint the barn on a green bean diet
But the barn is falling side ways and it needs a new foundation
so we're busy pilfering cinderblock from the nearby sub-division
that's putting up the taxes and causing light pollution
while George Bush on the radio declares his final solution

That cows won't come home to milk and the pigs not getter fatter
and the bank is breathing down my neck saying this is a serious matter
But I won't work for w@l - m*rt no matter what I do
No you won't find me wearing a smile of red white and blue
I'll be weaving willow baskets for market day next week
and hope to god I can afford the simple life I seek

cos life in the country it really is quiet chill
a little R 'n R in the front porch seat
after we've made cheese dipped candles chopped kraut and canned tomatoes
pulled weeds saved seed and pickled all the beet
we can make ends meet
and live our dreams
and soak our feet
