I sit beside the Cuyahoga creek and wonder how he done it-
Pursued by motivated Native Americans
across the burning Midwestern grass,
until he found himself caught
between the Devil and the wide blue stream.
Captain Brady never hesitated,
never admitted defeat for one minute.
In that great key to the city moment,
Captain Brady (and horse)
over the raging creek to safety.
We have a coffee shop named in his honor now.
A lot of brave people have decided to leap
after a little too much cappucino.
You know how in life things just happen,
and you search the skies for answers,
and you throw the I Ching for giggles,
and you consult the charts for direction?
Well, on those days when indecision
has got the best of you,
I want you to consider the Captain Brady
approach with an open mind.
I just got on my horse one day and leaped-
and just kept on leaping.
I leaped right out of Kent,
right out of Ohio,
right out of America,
right out of this planet,
right out of this galaxy,
right on out to the farthest reaches.
It was then I realized that the Indians weren't chasing me.
I realize now that this constitutes some sort
of personal breakthrough,
and believe me I appreciate that and all,
but the real question for me now is-
Does this sort of thing
warrant my own coffee shop?
