Horn sounds off, the gridlock doesn't mind.
Offer help, he comes back swinging wild.
I was the boy, he was the clown,
And I was holding in the laughter when he was
Trying to knock me down.

Fourteenth floor–you cut me out today.
Glass reflects the harlequin display.
You'll be the boy, I'll be the clown,
And I hope I leave you laughing when I
Leave you on the ground.


from Roger White, released September 28, 2012
