Life Is Like A Wheelchair

Maybe you don’t understand Just how crippled you are… When you wish upon that star… Sure, the star takes you away but Not too far. Not today. But… a little glass of whiskey. Couple cold beers. Whisk away all dreadful fears. Tomorrow blames your low set bar And whispers hey, what about your star?

When Kids Kill

They put a choke hold on his whine pipe. Took his sharing to the enth degree. Stretched his Savoir faire. Like they didn’t care. He was broken, it was sad to see. Then he rose up, off all fours. A maneuver that would open doors. He would live, thankfully. He would let the beggars see. […]

At Bullshit’s Edge

He could see the sun In the middle of the night. He could glide through fear On a single strand of fright. He could keep his pie hole shut. Kept his cool thru if, ands and buts. As humans screamed into his face. Calmness iced with grace. Squinting at this place Brimming now with anger. […]

Somehow The Little Bastard Knew I Saw Fifty Years Out

He picked his nose and ate it. Drank juice straight from the carton. Wanted what he wanted when he wanted it. Nothing he wouldn’t fart on. He howled the deep cries of the tortured. Tears he would flow like pee. Snot manufactured by the liter. Outdoors he’d try to pee upon me. But that fire […]
