innkeepers are kind of invisible
ever since “no room at the inn”
but i can tell you they’re very real people
with plenty of love within
they might make toilet paper pointy
place parsley on plates just so
they might learn a few things about us
perhaps more than we want them to know
but they get up early and stay up late
seems like they schmooze all day
i might want to become one myself
do you think it could ever pay?
they all seem so nice and smiley
like they live in some fairytale world
do they go home and scream at the dog?
do all of their dishes get hurled?
i can’t imagine life without innkeepers
no one ever cared more about me
without their heart-felt gracious service
what would a different world it would be
