John

John

I am not good at publicising myself I need a John the Baptist but perhaps I would need to reform first.

I am not the best or worst.

I will not list all my flaws I am given to flippancy, that’s me.

Also I am impatient and commit the sin of sloth, a grievous sin.

Should I reform, where will I begin?

I don’t believe I am a hypocrite but I could be wrong.

Heaven, so long.

Bertrand Russell said he did not want to die for his beliefs, he could be wrong.

I sing his song.

Is Hell where I belong?

My soul for what it’s worth.

Do I belong on Earth?

My Psychiatric Report

My Psychiatric Report

      I am considering releasing my psychiatric report to the world on the basis that nothing should be private and to show the sort of rubbish people get paid for.  It is about 3 pages long and mostly nothing whatsoever to do with me, irrelevant.  I am diagnosed schizophrenic but disagree with labels.

      When it finally got around to talking about me it said I am of high intelligence.  My brother said that was a mistake.

      Our lawyer at the time thought we should ask for a psychiatric report because it might help in a law case we had concerning a right of way dispute which we won and won again on appeal.  The idea was that my alleged mental condition meant I suffered stress because of an unnecessary law case, us being sued by the other party.  In fact the report made no difference.

      Tommy whatever-his-name was is dead, now are you satisfied said a man to my brother after the court cases.  He died from drink someone said, young if under 60 is young.  He sued us, my brother said, which is true.

      People who bring cases they can’t win and who know they are in the wrong don’t need a lawyer, they need a psychiatrist.  While on the subject of psychiatry, someone rightly said in a hundred years time the only people talking about modern art will be psychiatrists.

      My object in releasing my psychiatric report is to reduce paranoia in the world, but I don’t know if I’m getting very far with attaining that objective.  My advice to everyone, publish your psychiatric and medical reports if any.  Why be secretive?  What have you got to hide, and why?  So what if everyone knows, especially if everyone knows all about everyone else.  And so they should.

      If there is a day of judgement all will be known.  Do you look forward to that?   Its all very iffy of course, as the English might put it.   Iffy is an English word, part of the Queen’s English.  Prince Charles is heir to the throne.  God save the Queen.

      If I could find my psychiatric report I might publish it but that would require me to type it out because I have not got what lawyers call a soft copy.  Also, I don’t want to bore people.

Oscar Wilde said being boring is a mortal sin.  A friend agreed.

      That’s enough to be going on with.  A life filled with incident.

Try More

Try more than once, when you’ve tried once your job is not done.

Once is not the only one.

Try until you get there, something may turn up.

Keep looking, don’t shut up.

This is my advice, it worked for others, why not you?

Don’t put on only one shoe.

That would never do.

What I say is never give up hope.

You’ll get there, give yourself enough rope.

Otherwise you’re a dope.

Not a has been, a never was, you never tried.

Before your lived you died.

Chronic

I have chronic pulmonary congestion, its not fatal, don’t worry.

I will die but not in a hurry.

If I gave up smoking it would cure up but I won’t.

Many things I should do but I don’t.

Some I do reluctantly.

Mr. Go Slow, that’s me.

When the battle between good and evil is won I will consider my work done.

I live for fun.

Bible Story

The bible story is very convincing in one respect truth gets crucified.

The Devil lied.

How many times have you noticed this?

A Judas kiss.

Judas in the end committed suicide.

Hopefully the Devil died.

So die all liars and dishonest men.

Here we go again.

You know things are not right.

Turn on the light.

God bless your eyesight.

I won’t go on and on.

Do right not wrong.

My Best Friend

My best friend is dead.

Who can I talk to instead?

I have some various fragmentary friends, will they come around in the end?

Should I cheer up or shut up?

About the loving cup.

Some of my acquaintances are not bad.

Not completely mad.

What do I want from a friend?

A listening ear, consideration and encouragement I suppose.

God knows.

I have on more than one occasion sung a song.

With music you can’t go wrong.

Without a friend must I do everything alone?

Who can I call on the phone?

Ok so some guy just gave me good news, at least he did not say shut up.

The main thing is never give up.

All The Time

I have been here all the time, writing rhyme.

Defeating crime.

My long lost love I speak to you.

True.

I was locked out, lost.

At what cost?

I said before I’m always here.

Drink beer.

Good cheer.

My saviour is here.

In female form, keep warm.

I’m back again, I never went away.

Good day.

I love you.

Be true.

TV Personality

The life of a TV personality, was it worthwhile?

Could he smile?

What opinion did he have, if any?

Meanwhile he counted his dollar bills, which were many.

He was a middle of the road sort of guy.

Make you cry.

He went along with the mob to keep his job.

Is wasting time a crime?

Big time.

Have we had enough of that stuff?

Celebrating celebrity is not for me.

That’s not my cup of tea.

Common sense, set us free.

The fact that you make big money proves nothing, prostitute.

Up against the wall, I shoot.

Stop playing the game.

You’re all the same.
