    Default The Grant Writer's Blues

    In a musical moment between narratives, I came up with this...


    "Grant Writer's Blues"

    I'm an old grant writer, I been writin' grants all day
    Well, I'm an old grant writer, I been a-writin' grants all day
    Tryin' to get a little cash from FEMA, and buy a few SCBA

    The deadline's just a week now, better get my application in
    I said, the deadline's just a week now, better get my application in
    I think I've written up a dandy, if I don't get funded, it's a sin

    Just clicked on the submit button, too late now to fix it up

    If the peer review don't go for it, guess I'm just sh** out of luck

    My poor rejection letter's in my inbox, and this John don't feel so dear
    Time to back up and do it over, send it in again next year

    Yeah, the bass, like acoustic bass. Pronounced like first base though. I had one client on the phone, one holding, and one in the lobby waiting for me at the time...didn't realize how close to funny that was this afternoon!!

    it was a perfect weather day here. Wanted to play hookey, wanted to finish my AFG app, wanted to go home, couldn't get off the phone. It's a great life--no real complaint. Have a great night.
