Tug Of Love

I met a girl whose partner went off with their child.

She pursued him from another country into the wild.

That child is not going to school.

Will he grow up to be a fool?

Boy Band

I am a boy band of one, God’s misbegotten son.

Many a man rocks another man’s cradle as long as he is able.

DNA has a lot to say.

Has nature or nurture made me what I am, do I give a damn?

Boy bands grow up, its time to shut up.

Mass

Years ago Irish people weren’t allowed go to Mass.

Now they would consider it cruel if they were made go, I’ll let that pass.

Does science prove there is no God, I’m asking you?

You believe what suits you, that’s true.

I do.

Anonymous Letter

I am who you don’t know but I know you.

I saw you through the keyhole too.

Be not afraid, I shall not spill the beans.

Do it yourself by all means.

Headlines in the paper inches high.

People will know your name before you die.

In the meantime carry on.

I’m watching you, I’m here, I’m gone.

Garda Corruption

Why did the guards conspire against an honest man?

Is it because he knew their plan?

Why did they frame him for something he didn’t do?

Why did they pretend they hadn’t got a clue?

Watch out or they’ll do the same to you.

Blow

Blow up the world and win the war, is that what war is for?

Or kill people to change their point of view, would that work on you?

Angry voices blow hot and cold, I am old.

I’ve heard it all before, I don’t want more.

Who am I to say killers go away?

Enjoy a sunny day.

Why have you forgotten how to smile?

Your efforts are not worthwhile.

No one likes the world you create or people filled with hate.

If we don’t love you we are wrong.

Why can’t we get along?

Live and let live is my song.

Your philosophy stinks.

I say what everybody thinks.

Including you.

Me too.

Joke

Take me seriously though I joke.

I am the proverbial pig in a poke.

Yours for free, believe me.

Many a true word is said in jest, it’s the good humour test.

I have no wish to confuse, can white boys sing the blues?

If it wasn’t for bad luck I’d have no luck at all says an old blues song.

A joke is taking right for wrong.

The other way around as well.

Selling Heaven, buying Hell.

Oh well.

I see the funny side of things.

Jokers beat kings.
