Reality check please . . . . and thank you . . .
and I am lost and forgiven in my own way
The good thing about me is, well do I need to say it?
Lost and cut into bits and crying and flailing around like
I many not be able to get out of bed tomorrow.
Sorry to say that I am not going to run for re-election this time.
I want one of those ‘appointed’ positions. I can’t take the pressure of lost and not forgotten.

Good dog, good dog, down, down.
I see the formidable creator of all of this as making a fatal flaw in the ointment of art creation. There can be no solace in this dry formation of elements. I am in the cracked part, the part they throw away. I can not be held accountable for this shoddy workmanship and the lack luster response to it from you. I mean what did you expect? I can’t take it, but I have to.
I can’t taste it but I need to . . . . ‘Cause I’m thirsty and tired and I haven’t had enough to eat.
And the wind blows left to right, and then there’s the weather . . .damn the weather . . . .
