Oh poor, poor me, pity me, is how this reads to me...sorry...e
Am I afraid to move on,
Afraid of living in the light,
Finding comfort in the darkness of night,
Wishing for death, but of it I all the same feel fright…
Forthcoming of late is no employment,
Mayhaps that is why I feel just now no enjoyment,
I am employed part time on weekends now,
I might even for a full time enjoy to pull a plow…
Still in all a’skeered I do be, don’t ya see,
Sorry to dump on you here as I feel quite wee,
Scared to be stepped on, like that of a flea,
Unhappy with the way the world of late does treat me…

"ALAS, POOR YORICK, I KNEW HIM WELL..."
BUT NOT IN THE 'BIBLICAL' SENSE ...
GO - WHACK YOUR DOODLE -
BUT DO IT BEHIND A FENCE!
NOW - let's see - you got a PT job, right?
Is that not an improvement?
A step up?
A few Bucks earned?
Several Hours of feeling Necessary? Worthiness?
GOOD GAWD GERTIE - WHAT A GASH!
LIGHTEN UP, PILGRIM !!!
If your eyes opened this morning -
and you didn't wake up in HELL -
What could be more GOODER?
ENJOY IT - LIFE IS JUST SWELL !!!
drink more water, juices, and other good liquids,
stop smokin' BAD SHIT -
Keep on writin'
Show us your WIT !!! ( NOT WICK ) - WIT !
MERRYLANDER WHACKO !

|Now, if you have not light on, you save on electrical bills, if you haven't got warming in your house you are saving on fuel and condoms (better than cold showers) and when you are really afraid light a couple of thousand of those Enron shares you use for mattress.

PS, Rufuz will make a good feet warmer, but watch for Rene cold feet!!!!!!!!!!!

(((HUGS))) love and prayer - try not to give into the darkness. Come out into the light, where you are loved - sad write, too many feel like this.
