sanity and happiness


Sanity and happiness is an impossible combination. A diamond in the rough. Between you and your pillow. You cannot serve both god and money. My faith is melting off. The eyes of my own soul staring back at me. You can't teach an old dog new tricks. I'll have to accept you for who you are. The flower and the frog. This is the classic vinyl. And it's all clear. That you were meant to be here. And whatever is done is done. And done in the wheel of the needless. From the beginning. The roarin twenties roar. Run you monkey. I live in a world of grey hats. And no, they couldn't tell me. But i would beg them. Please let me go. I know where you've been. Just like the fella said. And no, you don't know me. Did it hurt to listen. Things are real. They see you there. They have to play nice. Did you bring a date. And i thought i was the comedian. There's some gentlemen sitting there next to the bar. Don't hurt me. I'll drag your legs out. You need the staples for homemade and when the hands get dirty. Raise our glasses and lift our spirits. Because the best holiday gift is being together. You'll be begging me to die. Lets call it for what it really is. At our disposal. A stage name i bet. And i can't help but wonder why. Alot of scrutiny. He trys to engage in criminal conspiracy. You were gonna bring this to me right. Thats a win we could use right now. Bring home the bacon. We'll die with the blood in the air.the latenight bookworm. his wrapsheet doesnt say much. i tried to squeeze him twice. He slithers away.And me, he found under a rock. That kinda of patients runs out. Washed up on the beach one day. Left on the basket of the doorstep. A hundred acres of horseshit. I hear theres cramps in those hills. A long time to have it. With my ass in the breeze. Knock 'em dead. We're gonna be fine. I love you. Our greatest hour starts now. So you can do more. History was made here. Enjoy better. You have nothing to lose. It's not to late to go a different way. My way or the highway. It's a winning hand. Only from a distance. They were always ugly. Where is the sense in that. Money falls out of the sky for these idiots. He thinks that he is the king. Girls inside screaming theyr head off. Why should they always get away with it. Is this a test. Five minutes ago. But i might. Brighten up your holidays. Get in. Get more christmas. It's just right for you. No matter what list you're on. This is the age of taking action. We daze till six p.m. theres more suspects than answers. Okay fine. As long as we're pals. Is there light here. Only one place makes em back east. Well see you around. Dale. Read em and weep. You're in it for love.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
