I'm afraid I feel the need
to sanitize my messy feed
of those who choose to bleed;

if only all involved
could change and see the world revolved
without them, problem solved.

Resourcefulness has always been
an attribute I harness when
resources are extremely low
a state I all too often know
but I will never be obsessed
with where I live or how I'm dressed
or if the car I drive is new
and thus associates are few
but as I said I make the most
of everything, it is no boast
for those I gladly call my friend
have loyalty until the end.

You keep telling us how to act
well tell us what you have done
oh wait, that requires a fact
an item your kind tends to shun

You can march and talk all day
on what you perceive to be
a higher moral ground per se
because you kill legally

but let me make one thing quite clear
to soldiers garbed in pink
if you haven't made life better dear
don't tell me how to think.

Shove Off

The more you screech your rage
the more I disengage
it's time to clear the stage

America once more
shall be a welcome shore
for the tired and the poor

while those who would destroy
our freedom and our joy
can leave right now, Ahoy!

Connected to the land
respectful of The Lord
obeying His command
compassion our accord

Surrounded by the sea
defiant to The Brass
obsessed with only me
I lost my open pass

Bewildered by the sky
reminded of The Son
who chose to bleed and die
our pact was never done.

I watch them all perform
theatrics of 'the norm'
their digital display
as virtual as they
a pose they primly strike
to get a phony like.

My stipend of solace is scant
but somehow I keep getting by
maybe because when I'm told I can't
it makes me more eager to try

and peace isn't easily won
so I've really learned to enjoy
a chance to blow off the perpetual fun
of dodging each perilous ploy.

What's currently distracting me?
Is she twenty two or twenty three
and why on earth would she want to flirt
with someone near as old as dirt
for any boyish charm I had
has faded more than just a tad
I'm better off to leave it be
but wouldn't want her feelings hurt
Oh why is it so much fun to be bad?

Business Model

No one would care
if we weren't there
No one -- you hear what I say?

Nothing will last
and time goes so fast
that nothing's worth fretting away

So just live your life
and deal with the strife
we all must encounter at times

As long as you try
being broke when you die
is surely the least of your crimes.

Two thousand and sixteen
attempts are quite a few
without finding something new
to grasp as we careen
that stalls the cold machine
designed to silence and subdue
any saviors that pursue
Two thousand seventeen.
