Like a bird on a wire...





















I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden crutch
He said to me, "You must not ask for so much"
And a pretty woman leaning in her darkened door
She cried to me, "Hey, why not ask for more?"

Oh, like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free


Ah, Mr. Cohen. This photo was not so easy to take with the husband calling up to the bird, look out bird, she is trying to steal your soul with her camera. Quite the card, him.

Leonard Cohen wrote some great lyrics.
