Irish People 2

What should Irish people say to each other, I hope it keeps fine for you or I hope you die roaring?

Old stories have me snoring.

Its pointless saying live and let live, do you mean the other one should do it?

Do it yourself, there’s nothing to it.

The world is full of honorary Irishmen and women too.

Including you.

Shanty Town

Why can’t people in a shanty town be left alone?

People who have almost nothing they own.

Let them live in what freedom they can.

Every woman and man.

And children too.

They are like you.

Me too.

They are citizens, do you care?

Why do you wish they weren’t there?

They probably wish that too.

Leave them alone from you.

Let them be.

Message from me.

A Million

I don’t want a million yet, I like having something to look forward to.

Don’t you?

Who would want to be a king, having everything?

Ask prince Charles or any of the others, and their brothers.

As long as you didn’t have to do anything, its nice having nothing to do.

I hope I have cleared things up for you.

Religion

Too much religion is bad for you, it makes you hate and kill.

If you think your God wants that take a pill.

Forgive, live and let live.

God made good, not bad.

He did not make you mad.

Your religion is what you do and believe.

The Devil is there to deceive.

He preaches hate and lies.

He may be your preacher in disguise.

Get wise.

If you make people hate at whatever level you are the Devil.

I’m not particularly religious but I know what’s true.

Do you?

Your God, if there is a God, is what you put first.

Your best, not your worst.

To repeat myself, God is good, not bad.

To believe otherwise is mad.

God may be seen as the quality of truth, love, justice, peace and all the rest.

It is on those terms you fail or pass the test.

I try, I have tried here.

The man who likes beer.

Sam Goldwyn said of Shakespeare he did it all with a feather.

Come together.

Variety and difference are God made, light and shade, religions too, why not?

Don’t live or die for hogwash, that’s your lot.

Money Talks

Saying one thing, doing another.

Who is that, your brother?

Maybe you too for all I know.

It only goes to show.

Say an organisation causes mental illness and contributes to its cure.

Are they completely pure?

Are you sure?

You may say everyone does it, I say no.

Money talks, I know.

It often gets its way.

I say.

Youth And Age

You are barely out of adolescence, I approach sensescence.

Its all before you and behind me, more or less.

What happens next is anybody’s guess.

You may plan your future, you may hope.

You may get addicted to dope.

Maybe you’ll go right, maybe wrong.

Your life may be a song.

What of me, what is to be?

Reflections on my history.

Its all a mystery.

What’s past is past, the future is yet to be.

A truism if you ask me.

You are young and I am old.

A story told and yet untold.

My soul is not for sale, its sold.

Go for gold.

I don’t want to go on forever, maybe you do.

I was like you.

Perfection is unattainable in a shop.

Full stop.

Trying

Should I bother trying?

Who is buying?

Who wants poetry?

Only me.

Why should I try?

Cry or die.

For what, for who?

For you.

I’m getting nowhere.

I am there.

I tell it as I see it.

Must I be it?

In conclusion may I add.

I am mad.

Still I battle on.

The impossible has begun.

Unfortunately people don’t think.

My blood is ink.
