God, I never want to let you down.
Hell is a long way down.
Is it alright to end two lines of a poem with the same word twice?
What is your advice?
May I expect an answer in the post?
Signed yours faithfully, the Holy Ghost.

Looking after the people is what the government should do but when the people won’t look after themselves what can you do?
I ask you.
Who wants houses built but does not want them near?
We like to live but choose to die.
Since when was truth a lie?
Don’t ask me about self inflicted woe.
There you go.
Dirty water and air not fit to breathe, people in need.
Will we die of greed?
A forgotten word among all the neglect.
Half truths are lies as well.
Welcome to Hell.

God luckily made me not a worrier, I’m also not a hurrier.
I won’t say I absolutely never worry, that would be a lie, then I’d go to Hell.
When I don’t wash I smell.
I need a good woman to keep me in order but I don’t like being told what to do.
My muse, my conscience will have to do.
I get around to doing things sometimes when all comes to all.
I give a good party, people have a ball.

Don’t believe me when I’m joking.
I’m not giving up smoking.
I will when I die.
Is that a lie?
Do you think they allow smoking in Heaven I asked a man, you don’t know what he said, you bet.
I haven’t told you yet.
You’d have no trouble getting a light in the other place he said with a straight face.
Another man said he tried being a comedian but no one laughed at his jokes, that itself is funny.
Worth the money.
Is that enough?
The world is not coming to an end yet.
I have another cigarette.

Don’t pretend there are no bad people and don’t pretend there are no good people, that makes no sense.
There are no good people or bad people, only what they do.
I’m talking to you.
What is your reason for being good or bad, what is your motive, what’s your excuse?
What’s the use.
Don’t believe a person who says just or well.
They’re on their way to Hell.
I was only whatever, get lost, no never.
So what if other people do it, why should you?
I may say me too.

I have not gone away.
I’m here to stay.
I’m reassessing things.
Dictators and kings.
Also little things.
How to get my word out.
Whisper, don’t shout.
The spoken voice has a lot to say.
I’ll try that, today another day.
I depend on other people for some things, lets all do our best.
Before eternal rest.
The next time you hear from me you will hear my voice.
Patreon is my choice.
But here, as well.
Why not in Hell?

Must we throw our hands up about the Irish people, don’t they care?
Coronavirus is there.
This lockdown thing is not going well.
Who will be consigned to Hell?
Irresponsibility Irish people is your middle name.
How responsible am I?
I might learn responsibility before I die.
I look forward to a drink in a pub or coffee bar.
If you look for an Irishman don’t look far.

Can I lure you into Heaven on my way to Hell?
There is water in the well.
Drink deep, wake from sleep.
Lamb becomes a sheep.
What does a cow think as she takes a drink?
It was meant to be you see.
You are not me.
As I wave goodbye I cry don’t die.
I may not lie.
Heaven is the only cure.
Of that I’m sure.
Don’t forget me too.
I care for you.

They take opportunities for good or ill.
Some save a life, some kill.
Life is your opportunity, use it well.
Make Heaven or Hell.

I am a run of the mill poet, really nothing much.
I have been compared unfavourably to Wordsworth and such.
So in my head I like to believe.
My ego is easy to deceive.
Almost no one in the wide earthly world has ever heard of me.
That appears to be the truth as far as I can see.
I am ordinary as Hell or Heaven or something in between.
You know what I mean.
At least I hope you do.
I am the same as you.
