“Poetry is

the art of

uniting pleasure

with truth.”


― Samuel Johnson






vulgar speech

display of ignorance

oaths among the stupid





God lives forever

time measured by the light year

man’s life but a blink





can I tell a lie
grandiose ego I
makes me want to cry
the morals which I defy

Mother taught me right
the church made  me fear sin
the commandments I thought were trite
it was always more important to win

t’was instant gratification that I sought
never dreamt of the consequence
tried every sin that could be bought
the highs were far above common sense

struck sober by a God incident
was almost restored to sane thinking
the addiction was false imprisonment
controlled by habits that were stinking

to thine own self be true
a better way of living
a Higher Power to see me through
enjoying a life I thought was missing

I cannot tell a lie
I no longer want to be that bad guy

ME and the Boss
