The Abyss

I dwell in the abyss, is it of my own making?

Love is there for taking.

It has been said love is giving.

Am I living?

I must give and give and give.

Then, only then, I live.

Life is real, life is hard, its not so bad when you try.

Try before you die.

Or live a lie.

I talk to me, I talk to you.

To be is to do.

That’s telling you.

Me too.

Single Parent

I am a single parent of a problem child.

His name is Jesus Christ, should he be crucified?

He talks of love and truth and all that stuff.

All guff.

Have we had enough?

Christianity, he came back to say, has not failed, it has not been tried.

Ask someone who committed sucicide.

Who says he lied?

The Cure

To cure the madness of the world is why art is here.

Some go mad, some say God is here.

In a pint of beer.

Look and listen, open your eyes and ears.

What do you see around you, is life full of fears?

A work of art can play its part, with dedication it is made.

Bring art into the light, out of the shade.

Art is seeing, being, doing.

To a lover it is wooing.

What is life without those things?

In my heart music sings.

See what is, see what’s real.

Above all, feel.

This artist delivers to you this pill.

Should I speak from a hill?

A perfect world had we the will.

So why say art is mad?

The world is, the world is sad.

Art exists to make you glad.

Drink in, drink up and take the cure.

A perfect world for rich and poor.

Smoking Hell

Smoking is burning your money in Hell.

You could die of cancer as well.

You might lose a leg, or even two.

Is smoking the right thing to do?

I’ll give up after you.

It makes no sense in shillings and pence.

If you want to die young, go ahead.

Are you dying for a cigarette?

Try life instead.

Mr. Nobody

He doesn’t expect anyone to do anything, is he right?

Mr. Goodnight.

Who says things are alright?

Not me, do you?

What’s a fellow to do?

I dislike proving anyone wrong.

I like when we get along.

Mr. Perfect has not shown up.

If he did would you say shut up?

If I plug my finger in the dam will you say who do I think I am?

I dislike napalm in Vietnam.

And man’s inhumanity to man.

Must I do something if you don’t?

I will, I will, I will, I won’t.

Okay maybe, give me time.

I’ll get around to it in rhyme.

Will truth and love win?

Where do I begin?

I meant to say when.

I am the least of men.

Hope lives here.

Maybe next year.

I disappear.

Young People

Young people tend to say no one does something when they mean themselves, that’s true.

Do you?

I was unaware anyone knew everyone, I have not met that man.

Or woman to be precise, or orangutan.

Statistically speaking the population of the Earth is big.

They are not the same, some don’t eat pig.

When you say no one nobody you must mean you.

Other people exist too.

Stop saying no one does something when you don’t know or don’t mean what you say.

I don’t listen to rubbish, I go away.

I checked up, you’re wrong.

Sorry to confuse you with the facts, so long.

Solicitors

Some are good but they are few and far between.

Walk in off the street, see what I mean.

Is their brain at your service or their own?

Do you have to ask, leave them alone.

They go through the motions, that’s all they do.

And send their bill to you.

Go by recommendation, ask a friend.

The good are good, the rest drive you around the bend.
