|Why am I reminded of the W.C. Fields line, "It was a woman who drove me to drink and I forgot to thank her."
Your wonderful sense of whimsy allows you to make grave points without preaching.

Is a sorry excuse

I daily choose.
Yes, Lori, the only "he" is me...and thee.

|It's what I call "drive-by religion." You act like an a**hole all week long, then pop into the confessional booth on Sunday to get "clean again", then it's back out into the world carrying on like a complete wanker taking no responsibility for your own actions. Great snide little slap in the face poem to those who do this.|

This is more than clever and witty, it pricks and stabs and jolts. Yes!

|HOW RIGHT YOU ARE...WHEN ONE IS AWARE OF THE FACT THAT THEY ARE HURTING OTHERS AND BUT DOESN'T TRY TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT... INSTEAD...FINDS EXCUSES FOR NEGATIVE ACTIONS, THEN THEY REALLY ARE 'CHOOSING' NOT TO CHANGE. THANKS FOR SHARING AND BLESSINGS.

|So right you are, when people use religion and these sad excused for a lack of humanity it makes me sick, forgive and turn the other cheek...not in this lifetime, make em pay.

|You're doing a worthy service, Lori, putting responsibility back into the hands where they belong.|

|Don't you just hate those people who take no responsibility for their actions or their fate? Well stated.

|Very cleverly penned, Lori...love the rythmic flow. The last verse is awesome! We're always blaming someone else! giggle

I reckon there is a devil in each and every one of us, and we must always be extra vigilant to keep him chained up where he belongs.
I liked the symbiosim with you and the dog and spouse.

|Yes, it is a serious topic, Lori, and I don't think it was all that playful / You took the subject and gave us illustrations of it in a compact and dynamic way / That you began to see you in the dog and the spouse is heavy-duty seriousness . . .|

|A very sorry excuse, indeed.|

You put on paper what many of us do and feel.
Without "Divine Guidance" we are all lost on a spinning wheel.

|Thought provoking, Lori - agree with Paul. If Jesus is love, the devil is the exact opposite, who tempts us to act ugly - and we, being human, usually follow in his footsteps. JMO, FWIW ... well done.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
|Reviewed by Paul Berube
|Well said, Lori. But truly, it "IS" the devil's handiwork. Stand tough, pray and may God bless you my friend.|
