Politics, it’s for other people isn’t it?

When did the writing for money so the bank account could be filled become more important
Than writing one sentence that made my head buzz?

When did the ashtray get so full that I couldn’t push any more cigarettes into it

And it made sense

What happened to me

Did I become old ?

When did I start caring that the things I said annoyed the people who wanted everything to be light

To be funny

All the time

Don’t rock the boat,

Keep it funny mutherfucker

Otherwise we won’t like you anymore

We don’t care about that sort of shit

Gimme a mutherfuckin’ break….

  • Marx said -- “Religion is the opiate of the masses.” We have more drugs in the formulary now.

    Unfortunately the world is no laughing matter.

    Many think politics is for others and those others eventually subjugate the indifferent.

    Provocative Garry!

    • Thanks Larry. I think I was provoking myself with this, kicking my own ass, it needs done from time to time. Thanks for reading.
