Description
On purpose... I haven’t written anything for a long time... do you ever get tired of your stuff... I woke up a few mornings ago with this poem skipping through my head... in the middle of the day I found the punch line... this morning I decided to make it into a song....

please don’t consol me about Max.... he’s still doing fine... it’s just me goofing around with words and music....

Lyrics
Max has had a tough life... That is how the story tells
Max could never give us pups... we cut off both his bells
I'm sad to say the family dog expired recently
After a vote we planted Max under the dogwood tree

Now on it's face, It seems this song speaks only of his doom
But I’ll look forward every spring to seeing Max in bloom
Because the roots of that young tree drink in his final juices
And in each dogwood blossom Maxwell finally reproduces...
And in each dogwood blossom Maxwell finally reproduces...

There are LAWS, Carmichael...
Laws, and, like, TASTE and I dunno, DIGNITY. And stuff..

But what the heck, forget all that. YOU obviously have. Nice tune. I'm very glad that I don't have to weep at it, because it would get in the way of the laughing. Reminiscent just a tiny bit of James Taylor's 'Mona', way back when...

It's good to hear something from you again...

Original
That's the most serious sounding and musically beautiful song about...a dog's final juices...I think I'll ever hear. I was torn between admiring the music and laughing at the lyrics. On second thought 'Original' is not cutting it, I'll look for a better word...

Parichayak...
... pretty much had it. But I'll help him out with a word; how about "unique" or "creative"? That's more like it ;) Nice stuff here, boss!
