The Ballad of Darci Price

Darci sat in the seat next to me on the bus as it whirred off again
I suddenly had a new friend
Speaking as if he had nothing to say he kept telling his stories to me
Speaking so conversationally

He told of books he’d been reading through written on catastrophe
And on life’s deepest mystery

He wondered of science and politics and how many girls I’ve kissed
I thought of the words Darci waited to tell and the words that somehow I’d missed

On the bus that kept stopping and starting again
Like the words Darci tossed all around were the answers that somehow we found

He wondered of science and politics and how many places I’d been
I thought of the words Darci waited to tell to the one that turned out to be me

We answered how strange questions can be……. and why Darci sat in the seat next to me
How our questions can turn eternally to the ways of our maker
To the ways of our mighty maker
