I love this man's spirit

when another man would bitch this man smiles

I love this man's spirit
when he smiles I can not help but smile

when another man would bitch this man smiles

snow and cold
still smiling
the threat of ice on the ground
still smiling
the guard sends him to the back of the building to make his delivery
still smiling

"cause we a messengers... that is how we roll" he tells me

if I were king I would hire him as my jester
as he is clearly wise and I am clearly the fool
at least we would both be smiling
the dim king and the shrewd pauper

only I am not a king and he is not a jester
and it has been a long time since I read King Lear

so how do I get to smile more often?
I guess i need to follow this man around on his bicycle

saw this man this afternoon after work
I was doing some low speed riding with some high speed spinning

he gave me a whistle and a wave
I gave him a wave and a smile

smiling is infectious
