A playful verse on a serious topic.

I kicked my dog

It must be sin

I hit my spouse

It’s sin again-

 

The devil simply

is too strong

he makes me do

this hated wrong.

 

Forgive me jesus

I always say

I bow my head

Then go my way-

 

I’m lip service sorry

And teary eyed

But Change is short

Even though I cry.

 

I kicked my dog

Could it be me

I hit my spouse

It’s me, I see-

 

The devil simply

Is a sorry excuse

for all the wrong

I daily choose.

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.

good one Lori, sometimes I feel everyone uses the devil for an excuse also, I never seen a devil anyway but I have seen plenty of mean azz humans, worse than devils, cheers

This is spicy, sassy, and cute. You're just paying homage to the devil. <grin>

It's always a sin to kick your dog. The spouse? Well maybe he had it coming. The theme? Perfectly tuned to the Sunday righteous. Well done. Patrick

people must accept the consequences and of their own actions ... no one else is responsible ...

clever & well written, Lori ...
Reviewed by Peter Schlosser (Reader) 10/17/2009
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.

Lori,
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

Yep Lori

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.

Excellent Lori!
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 10/17/2009
Well said, Lori. But truly, it "IS" the devil's handiwork. Stand tough, pray and may God bless you my friend.
