Thailand (Why Can't All the World Be​?​)

from Hospice Chorale by David E. Williams



Johnny’s got his ticket
for a twenty four hour flight
across the broad Pacific
to a land of eternal night

He’s travelling on business
but he’s not a businessman.
He’s got a taste for chicken
but not the kind in coq au vin.

He’ll start out with some satay
to whet his appetite
then slurry down some shumai
cause it won’t put up a fight.

His mind is in a whirl
as he falls asleep he’s smiling.
Why can’t all the world be Thailand?


from Hospice Chorale, released July 12, 2017
