Shopping cart dying on the rocks. (Courtesy of MSniceguy, August 2010)

Ashes to ashes. Metal to metal.

Here I am, taking my last breath. I know you didn’t see me covered by the gentle waves hitting the rocks, and I know it’s hard to see my clunky metal when you’re thinking of the lovely (though, somewhat hazy) Verrazano Bridge view.

If my wheels must take its last roll, it’s better that I die here with this lovely sunset than buried under some cold, dark soil.

    Just another terrible sign of the times. When shopping carts think there is no reason to keep pushing along you just gotta know things are really bad all around.

    I think I read somewhere that this particular area is known as Dead Shopping Cart Bay.

    “Left a good job in the city,
    Workin for the man evry night and day,
    And I never lost one minute of sleepin,
    Worryin bout the way things might have been.
    Big wheel keep on turnin,
    Proud mary keep on burnin,
    Rollin, rollin, rollin on the river.

    Cleaned a lot of plates in memphis,
    Pumped a lot of pain down in new orleans,
    But I never saw the good side of the city,
    til I hitched a ride on a river boat queen.

    Big wheel keep on turnin,
    Proud mary keep on burnin,
    Rollin, rollin, rollin on the river.

    Rollin, rollin, rollin on the river.

    If you come down to the river,
    Bet you gonna find some people who live.
    You don’t have to worry cause you have no money,
    People on the river are happy to give.

    Big wheel keep on turnin,
    Proud mary keep on burnin,
    Rollin, rollin, rollin on the river.

    Rollin, rollin, rollin on the river.
    Rollin, rollin, rollin on the river.
    Rollin, rollin, rollin on the river
