At the Loading DockI saw the symphony the other dayMore Like This
I didnt buy a ticket, i just saw em
Unloading cellos and bassoons
From a truck.
Asked the guy if he was a careful driver.
Not even if they pay extra.
Nah he really said something else

Maybe it was “Large Marge”
and I chastised her for being

And maybe she told me
“That was just a role.
Im actually someone’s grandmother”
And maybe I felt bad.
Maybe I should buy a ticket
to this symphony and look
to see if anyone is playing
a broken viola or a punctured

I actually dont like the symphony
Too much talking and “Look at me
