The Tinkling of the Golden Stream

less than 1 minute read

the golden stream is thin
sometimes it sprays wide
sometimes it misses the mark
it sometimes hits the side

when it misses is when, oh
the missus gets real mad
put the seat down! she says
you make me really sad

the golden stream flows hard
sometimes it flows in droplets
the golden stream is molten gold
but never the colour of chocolates

the golden stream loses colour sometimes
the sign of pink of health
but when the gold sees red, you can
be sure of losing your wealth

the golden stream’s a wonderful thing
folks spray without a care
oh, but when it flows, unstoppered, undammed
the relief’s beyond compare
