I been cursed by fools
Whipped by Saints
Felt white hot poker
Ravage my taint
But I’m still
Singing

Words that I use
To express
Mankind’s squalor
Universal mess
Can
Be
Ugly

Angry kicks
I have endured
By small minds
Not inured
To
Critical
Thinking

Dwarfish clowns
Who approach me
Offer friendship
Then angrily flee
For the words
I’ve
Spoken

I’m not kicking
And I’m not mad
Just seems queer
Makes me mighty sad
This
Lit-
mus
Test

Takes ROY G BIV
To make rainbow
Enjoy give and take
Panoply’s glow
But some
Just
Don’t see it

Theirs is the way
The truth
The light
Not just Fundamentalist
Who suffer this plight
No
By
Golly

Facts don’t matter
Figurers sigh
Go against the grain
They just scream
“Lies!”
And I
Ain’t
Kidding

Sacred cows
Or blind spots
Call em what you will
World’s got a lot
Sure
Can
Tell
You

So If you read
Something I write
And it causes bile
In you to rise
Just
Take
A moment

Check a fact
Look up a clause
Before you rant
Take a pause
Cuz sometimes
You
Are
Ugly

If you and I
Disagree
No need to
Respond
Rabidly
Just Give
Me
A holler

My thoughts and beliefs
While quite sincere
Aren’t carved in stone
Though They’re revered
Maybe
You
Can
School me

But if you choose
To bluster and sputter
Get irate
Act like a nutter
Then The problem
Lies
With
You

Doesn’t mean we can’t be friends
War asked the question
And I assent
Whether you’re working
For Mafia or CIA
I’m
Still
Listening

I been cursed by fools
Whipped by Saints
Felt white hot poker
Ravage my taint
But I’m still
Singing

 Words that I use

Mankind’s squalor
