brass tacks

11 Jul

don’t see many brass tacks anymore

lots of plastic tacks, paper tacks, and virtual tacks

but no brass

the few that are around aren’t easy to see

covered in the dirt and oil and shit of a century

they are holding up our bridges

they are keeping body and soul together, those tacks

but now days everything got to be in the cloud

put your all your useless crap in the cloud where

it will be safe

yeah, right?

i think everyone, old or young, girl or boy, stupid or smart

can agree

let’s get back down to the nitty gritty

back to the brass tacks

let’s make them shiny and new again
