Same Old Song

Peggy Claire is half cowboy and half Southern Belle. She was born in New Mexico and raised in New Orleans. She has made her final home as far South and West as she could get (and still be in the United States) in San Diego. With the exception of a few years spent as a singer/songwriter, her penchant for writing poetry has been a private matter. Until now.

I'm pushing you away
While I'm begging you to stay
And we're playing that same stupid game again

All the men I've left behind
Tend to sometimes cross my mind
And I'm singing these same old sad songs again

Again and again
Dead ends
Again – begin again
Then again, end

— 1977
