RESPECTABLE

Folder: 
POESIE HERESY

 

I think they wanna be

RESPECTABLE

but why?

I don’t know;

never have, never will

but they say

never say never

and clichés ruminate

in my head;

the solemn rhythm sits

comfortably

within my realm.

I hear a song

and it echoes

in my ears;

the resonance

clears my soul;

purification

through consumption

of holy water

but that’s

getting too catholic

and I’m trying

to be politically correct

and being catholic

isn’t politically correct

but DON’T

tell Catholics that;

won’t go over too well

like Carlin’s arm pit farts

but none too well

taken

with a grain of salt

and hopefully

a teaspoon

full of good humor

will keep the scene

well balanced

so no one will

even know we’re here

again and again and again

One Voiced Oplnion

Could shatter the politcorrect paradigm - to be seen and heard - what a revolt that might be. A change sis cathartic evacuous purging. We need another heroine!
