country n news-its all gotta go


we looked at each other
and both agreed
its gotta go

as we drive out of our driveway in a few weeks
close our two gates
we will look back over these 10 acres
we will leave it all

all we will have left of the place will be our 2 cars
full of what we deemed important
we make that journey back to where it all started
forty years ago

i think now about what we did
if one of my kids had done that
i would have told them
you are crazy

my wife she was 8 months pregnant
she had just graduated from college
i had graduated a few months earlier
we had no health insurance
i had no job

i knew i wanted to go to medical school
my life long dream
this was my best route to get there
was to make this cross country move back to
where i was born

we loaded up our uhaul truck full of all our
beat up and used furniture
dragging my old ford falcon behind it
having a friend drive our volkswagen bug out to us later
as he made his trek back to his hometown
in the east

we are doing it in reverse
our decision to move forty years ago
as it turned out to be the correct one
i finished a 30 year medical career
my wife she is finishing her teaching career
our kids are raised
we have no debt

we will head back west
to the next chapter in our life
this time taking only what we can stuff in our car
as we downsize to a smaller apartment or condo

its all gotta go this weekend
as we do our moving sale
selling everything
that wont go into our cars

all those donald duck gifts
