Write what you will,
Or take a suicide pill,
But write for fun I will do till I die,
If you don't like it,
Without being profane, I can't say why!

If I have made some statements,

That are negative to your sentiments,

May I say, then don’t review,

Of for that matter don’t read my works; yes get a clue,

For some of my works are quite stinky, yes pee u…J


I truly love to hear that someone I did make smile,

I go as far as I can to do this, yes the extra mile,

But sometimes I will be less than considerate,

Making a joke at someone’s expense,

Like most comedians of our time,

Sometimes I may even a religious belief, desecrate,

If you do not like it, too bad, I don’t want to hear you whine…


This will be, if I can remember in the future,

My last time I will apologize for writing my opinion,

After this and you want to whine and cry, go peel an onion,

For if you can write about things I don’t find to make sense,

Or things that are less than “politically correct,”

Then why should I straddle the middle of the fence…?

You always make me laugh, my friend, and that is a truly needed gift in our world today. Write and Rant On. But don't linger on that fence - especially if it's a picket fence - Ouch!

Don't every apologize for who you are. Most people don't have the courage to be themselves. And when they try to be other people...well they usually muck it up. Write on. ~ Sara

If I don't like what someone writes I just pass it by till the next time. I hate censorship, and I can't understand why people just not read what offends them....However;-) I do think the titles should be okay for everyone because kids read too, in that vast audience we don't know about that do not comment. We tend to forget they are out there.
