IF I WERE A ROOF SLATE

Well, I've been about what, 44 years up on the roof?

That's about right. 2012… Nineteen sixty…eight. Yeah.

Lotta time gone by. “Lotta snow and sunbeams.”

Not a bad gig, up here on the roof. Still nailed in pretty tight. No seepage, no rot. Doin' my job.

Good crew up here, all us slates. Everybody gets along. No major disagreements or disputes. Someone has an issue, we just talk it out. I like that.

Overcast today. Rained earlier.

Those squawky birds.

Probably rain tomorrow, too.

When was that Frisbee? 1978, I think. Yeah.
