The next time I have to listen to some kid praise suicide I'll let them borrow my gun.

Mutha’s Only Half A Word
Mutha what am I doin’ here
surrounded by poets who
can no longer be content as
naughty fuchahs
and so must feign some kink
forcing admiration for my
coprophagic ranting
Mutha what am I doin’ here
when there’s spring water
laced with bourbon
four short blocks removed
from poets sucking lattes
decaf – flavor of the day
to match their semi dark poems
Mutha what am I doin’ here
when there’s a new Lady
twenty-five minutes away
who hasn’t yet discovered that
not only am I not Mr. Right
I’m not even Mr. Mediocre
and much too old a Mutha
to even dream of getting better

Mutha I’ll tell you what I’m doing here

with self absorbed poets

removed from my bourbon

away from that woman

Mutha I’m here ‘cause this is where

an aging muthafuckah belongs

Yes you are at home LOL! Love the beat sound of this poem and the humor Roger.

Now, there's a poet that gives literary graffiti the sound of street bards chanting "bad boy, bad boy, whannagonnado, when they come for you" and as another Mutha out here, I bow to you in admiration. (not bending over!!!)
