Twenty One

Based on a real story in the Torronto Star which may not be live any more, but its about an instant camera lost at an amusement park. A woman sent the photos in to the Toronto Star with a note. Well, at least I thought there was a story in there. Written for Songfight! in Novemeber, 2003.

found on the rides
a disposable camera
we developed the film
three people on file

she seems to be happy
her hair to her shoulders
with little white socks
and a self-conscious smile

i don't know if there’s a story in here
if there’s a story in here
all I know is that it was a nice day

he’s got tattoos
short hair, a trimmed moustache
sandals with socks
he looks to be proud

the child looks uncertain
‘spite a Prince Valiant haircut
he’s on an adventure
looking to be wowed

i don't know if there’s a story in here
if there’s a story in here
all I know is that it was a nice day
