Again, not the right category, but it tis not humorous nor witty...e

For our trespasses make us truly regretful,

Let us worry & stress & be in general fretful,

Leave us not to our own personal misgivings,

For as we travel through this life we all become,

Eventually, quite forgetful…






Sinking slowly with galoshes made of cement…


Why the hell did I write this little ditty,

You explain it to me as I awoke & had to of it write,

I am getting this down as fast as I can in the early morning night,

Alls the more it’s a damn pity…

It must be the state of our lives right now. First it's Jude and now it's you, what is going on with you all?
I am an optimistic person, but man oh man when you get bounced in the face with the reality of what is happening in this country it gets more and more difficult to be optimistic.

Good write, lends for a thought provoking morning.

Peace, love and light,

Anything one has to share is great Ed, it was important enough for you to write so it isn't a damn pity. Have a great day.
