YESTERDAY'S BAD NEWS




I'm am yesterday's bad news
today's misdemeanor
and tomorrow's probable cause
probably

I WOULD LIKE TO THINK

I would like to think
my feet don't stink.

but it's a sad fact,
as she scratches my back,

I'm not ready for prime time
'til she tattoos my behind

and lets in some sunshine,
and sprinkles on some fine wine.


"I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them."

Ian L. Fleming (1908-1964)

IT WASN'T THE MUSTARD GAS




"Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away."

Sir Winston Churchill (1874-1965)


alright, we're in the shower,
or in the bath,
all wet and soupy,
and death picks that particular time
to come calling.

now, will death sit there,
on the pot,
waiting of us 
to rinse off the soup,
dry off,
comb our hair
while death just sits there
on the pot
quietly waiting?

I think not!
no, death will grab us,
wet and soupy,
and hustle us off
to our great reward,
wherever the hell
that night be!

have you noticed?
this thing has no title?
this thing needs no title!
what this things needs
is a transfusion!

Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

but no mother and father. 

but, sometimes, a lover.

AND THERE I WAS

and there i was
relaxed
sucking back
some cool ones
when out of the smoke
here she comes
struts right up to me
sticks a tit in my face
and says suck

and me,
lactose intolerant!



I ate too much, too often, too quick, too fast
and now its too late
it don't leave much for this old dog
to celebrate


"The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good."

Samuel Johnson (1709-1784)

POLITICS IS AN ART

politics is an art
of taking something simple
and making it difficult

Very old post card of South Dakota Bad Lands


"Be nice to people on your way up because you meet them on your way down."

Jimmy Durante


fat chance, and all of that,
but what chances
when all of what we knew
suddenly turns to fat,
and the cat refuses
to chase rats?

LEAVE THAT PIG ALONE




her cat has all the talent
I need remember that

is that hope there in you eyes?
why should I be surprised?

Man will only drop so low
then, he will either die,
or start to grow
