All chits I got is for the weekend
I'm just an ordinary, ordinary guy
Afro-Filipino, ordinary guy
That's what I am
The ordinary man
You left behind

I saw my uncle Anthony the other day. He is a street minister. He walks Market Street passing out tracts. "Im working for the lord now", he says, after a lifetime of janitorial duties. "It may not pay very much, but the retirement plan is out of this world". He talks to the hustlers and players. Tells them to get ready.

I left her office, taking in an array of (mostly forgettable) faces about campus; many of whom were as confused as I was.
