Ain’t nuthin’ a fer-sure thang

By L. Stewart Marsden

Ain’t nuthin’ a fer-sure thang no mo’ . . .
Oh, they’s some thangs likely, I ‘gree —
like sun-ups,
an’ sun-downs —
but this all-round sartin and you kin bet your booty it’s gonna happen – ings
are jes’ not happenin’ no mo’ —
hit jes’ ain’t sum’pin one kin count on,
and they’s no ‘mount a wishin’ or hopin’ or
tryin’ to faith it to be . . .
ya can’t make what won’t be, be —
an’ that is fac-shully the way hit is:
ain’t nuthin’ a fer-sure thang no mo’.

Now, you-all ‘member that, ya hear?
