The Legend of Black Eyed Bob
by Robert G Brown
Original Draft – 7/3/2015
Have you ever heard the Legend of Black Eyed Bob?
He was a master thief and it was fear that he robbed.
He stole every bit; yeah he was really that good.
So beware…in case he rolls through your neighborhood.
He will take all your hate. He will steal all your guilt. He will rob you of doubt.
And he gives you a clean bill of health.
So whatever you do…please do not pout.
He carries the bag that holds all the world’s fears.
And he cleanses them all as he cries out in tears.
He loves you so much…much more than you know.
Because as many of us see…we reap what we sow.
So take a deep breath, and relax for a bit.
And when you are fresh and ready…we will climb out of this pit.
Life is totally awesome when we work as a team.
And it’s the best way to cleanse your mind and keep it clean.
Now you are happy; yeah life is grand…and the only thing you did was lend a helping hand.
Time to hurry up now; don’t get left behind.
Black Eyed Bob is headed to the party where everybody is feeling fine.
It’s in the Kingdom of Heaven…and the address is One God’s Way.
Where even when it’s raining…it’s a bright sunny day.
I better tell you now…Black Eyed Bob is quick as a lightning bolt, so you best be fast.
And when he eats the wrong foods it gives him really bad gas.
Try to stay calm; everybody be cool.
Every dumbass around thinks Black Eyed Bob is a dumbass too.
Let me tell you friend…he is just playing the fool.
Keep your eyes wide open when Black Eyed Bob comes to town.
Because if you know him like I know him…he can be quite the clown.
And some of you know him as Robert G Brown.
