Room you came in is not yours.

That room have so many doors.

Don’t scream motherfuckers.

Hold it open.

Keep it open.

The penned up can’t wait.

Barry

Quite so much today.

Jesus can you give give me life

And in your special way

Can you steal away my senselessness

Barry

 

We Drank Throughout Every Day For Evening We Boarded Other Sheeps

I found this mind.

Spoke we did and then

We dated.

It broke me and soon we

Faded into

Couples. Couples.

Barry

The World Ain’t Turning But The Spinning Continues

Grasp reality.

Barry

 

Dancing The Real Time Schadenfreude

An unthought-out plan.

Another also ran.

The Throwers Of Quill

Shit came out her eyes and nose.

Tiny veins wrapped with pantyhose

Couldn’t contain the poison, so…

She hissed instead of speaking.

You couldn’t help but see her tweaking.

Even though she seemed so freaking

Nice.

The Purpose Of Life

If you ask what is the purpose of life

You’re already on it.

Barry

Visit Your Past Like A Personal Cemetery

 

Please be a fucking idiot.

A retard and a sloth.

Be the worst of the worst.

A stink-bomb with shoes.

From there you shouldn’t get lost.

Grunt when you think about old you.

Cringe when you re-live that stank.

Savor the fact that you washed off that shit.

Think of someone you must thank.

Mom And Dad Said They Didn’t Lie But They Didn’t Know The Truth

 

When I say Halt!

You halt.

If I ask who you are

You say.

If I rest my hand on my gun like this

That is when you pay.

With your life? You ask.

Good question, dude!

Read my lips, it helps me resist rude.

Yes! With your life!

What else you got?

Disappear the whole works with

One good shot.

What you got ain’t enough

That’s true.

But it’ll do.

If You Ain’t Infected With Kaizen, Don’t Get In The Game.

Collaboration met competition and

The two of them arm-wrestled.

They each stood on the greenest grass

And in each other’s sights, they fessed up.

Rested untested like spilling the beans.

No barred holds, no barriers.

No stupid damn meetings.

Sure, they damned the torpedoes and

Then they took to the air.

Dragged the future to the present like

They didn’t even care about

Time…

There’s no time.

No time to compare.

Just engage yourself and

Re-engage yourself and

Beware, beware, beware!

Collaborative competition.

Good shit out of thin air…

Barry

 

 

A Rising Tide Sinks Many Ships

 

The barnacles, Bill.

The barnacles will

Carve us a hole.

A hole that will

Hit us in our gullets and

Our gullets will

bend us and

Our unbendables.

Our unbendables, Bill!

Barry

 

I Know You Fucking Told Me So

 

Life has a boot.

A great, big boot.

And life will walk right on ya.

Now, if you scoot and

Give a hoot then

The boot might loop on by ya.

But it’s still there.

Don’t you fear.

If your soul separates

Boot’ll find ya.

Barry

 

Your Sense Of Urgency Left Through The Porthole Called Boredom

You say you’re the boss, but you’re not.

You say you gave up but were caught.

You say you’re relaxed but are fraught with

Lies man. Lies man.

Who ya lyan to man?

Why your lies are true man.

Through man.

Think your lying through man.

Barry

 

Prayers Are Wasted On Mister Brown

Mister Brown ain’t down for the count.

No sir!

Mister Brown is down for the fount.

Oh ya!

He’ll take a little sip.

Maybe look around a bit…

Mister Brown will then yawn and remount.

Barry

Unmaking Mistakes

This thing bites.

This thing sucks.

Wait here to get crushed by mucks.

Mucky-mucks who just say shucks.

You boo-hoo there, take these bucks.

Learn a lesson you

Silly fucks!

Barry

 

Nothing Was What He Listened To And From Nowhere He Listened Well

When I look like this keep

Your pie hole closed.

Silence is what I need.

I’ll break the silence when

It’s time to be broken.

Then you heed my lead.

Talk about stuff I want to hear.

Watch my frown

Is it happy or sad?

Don’t cross the line into

Your inter-rests or

I’ll be a bored up lad.

Okay friend?

Barry

 

 

When Your Bank And Mail And Your Phone Go Missing

 

Someone ain’t eating out tonight.

Or driving, right?

Peed off? Quite!

Their damn doors are app-ed up tight.

Cards ona phone now outa sight.

Kinda feeling stunned and not that bright.

See, they’re no longer a person.

Barry

 

Poor People Watchin’ The Rich People Prey Thought “It Gotta Be Workin’ For Them”

 

Bow your head for a moment afore you eat that meal.

Shit’s mighty hot and the younguns squeal

If we feeds it too fast

It’ll burn yer mouth

Then you soon forget what

Eatin’s about.

Barry

When You Blindly Reach Around Gonna Grab The Sparkplug

Oh, you’re gonna get a shock!

A shock that stops all talk.

And hold it long enough, your clock.

Blindfolded, why you walk

That unnecessary plank?

Barry

Sublimate Yourself By Choice Only

That dude makes you sick.

That dude is a prick.

Why you gonna stick

When that dude makes you sick?

Barry

When The Knives In Your Back Get Too Heavy

 

Your hand went over your heart during anthems.

You marched everywhere you went.

Our rules twisted with twisty beer caps.

Your rules would not be bent.

You toed the straight line, the tough and the narrow.

Corruption splashed over you but you didn’t care oh,

You saw it and nod to it, you stepped away.

But tell me man, honestly, how did that pay?

Did they berate you, dismiss you and hang you to dry?

Did those bastards way-lay you and spit in your eye?

Did they promise the right thing then secretly lie?

So now you, you soldier.

You citizen, you.

Now that they’ve used you

What will your heart hand do?

Barry
