my day begins
at MidNight

that Twilight
between Night & Day
what can I Say
Vagabonds
Bums
Drunks
Whore
Just The Bores
knockin' at my Doors

"if..."
"if a..."
"If you could"
"I would..."
"i Shoulda..."
"i Woulda..."
"if i couda'"
"Please"

"got a dollar
to spare?"

"a nickel
a dime
a penny
a cigarette
a light?"

got nuthin'.
nuthin' to lose.

except...
old hope
old dope
the last drink
last drink
last think
they drunk
last think
they thunk

"BUB's"
ComenDrums

poor's
whores
young's
old's
who's stories
told

so bold
to ask the ?

we all make a suggestion
in our frustration
"get a job"
"don't rob"

but...
"oh baybe maybe..."

whores we are
whores we be
apple cores

sell ourself
to buy our self

just a thought
buy the way
anyway
i did paid for this time

you paid that's right
here's my dime no fight
my bar i saw it all
your slice of life i can recall
we had ,madams & mafia
sports stars and media
bums whores and punks
teetotalers and drunks
alcoholics and entertainers
bartenders with fancy fingers
waiters /waitresses the same
some things you can't name
straight,gays, bi's inbetweens
a real conglomeration scene
everyone knows life can be mean
it can also be a lovely dream...e.;-)

take your choice, it's your voice
