The Dog Left Scat on the Rug

Hey what's happening?

Stock market is tumbling,

Politicians are spending big bucks so we can watch them tossing dirt clods at each other
and my dog left scat* on the rug.

No fun, no uplift in this

I feel like running back to Jonesboro
Where there are stories
I want to hear.
Stories that make me feel good.

* I heard that scat word from storyteller Doug Elliott - its the word he uses during one of his nature stories about Dung Beetles - sounds so much more refined, don't you think.
