everything that's right
i discovered long ago
i don't have to listen
cuz i already know

don't need any facts
to show me what's true
my feelings are my guide 
i live my point of view

i don't have any need
for folks who disagree
they're just a bunch of haters
but they'll never hurt me

i need to stay pure
in a very safe space
that's the only cure
for the human race

a man-hating woman and a woman-hating man

September 8, 2021
a man-hating woman
and a woman-hating man
raised a couple kids
in a pool of quicksand

daughter got away
and overcome the sad
angry little mama's boy
blames everything on dad

a man-hating woman 
and a woman-hating man

smells and yells and warning bells
forty years of rage
and they never even knew
they built their own cage

Hypocrisy

September 5, 2021

Hypocrisy
There’s nothing true
In things that people 
Say and do…

wasting all your time 
until you’re dead
living other people’s lives 
inside your head
you might try
and live your own 
instead

What a clown
That stupid guy 
His perfect life 
Is such a lie…

wasting all your time 
until you’re dead
living other people’s lives 
inside your head
you might try 
and live your own 
instead
