Getting Straight

Getting straight
maybe it's not too late
I guess I got to do
the math
how many
years do I have left
or months or days
or hours before my death
or maybe it's minutes
or even seconds
guess I should have
eaten more spinach
I could promise to
turn over a new leaf
and take an herbal bath
shave my beard
so I don't look so weird
find out that God is an equal
opportunity employer
go to the mosque on Friday
the synagogue on Saturday
and to church on Sunday
then work on Monday
from eight
till four o'clock
take the subway
home awash with
strangers and nuke
my dinner in the
are there really any good
frozen pizzas
watch the the tube
listen to some music
on Spotify
Eric Clapton made it happen
why can't I
then I daydream about the
girl with the creamy thighs
and the deep blue eyes
watch the news
and get the panel's views
regarding the election
come on
jeez I think I've paid my dues
maybe I can skip the lot
light a candle
and wear some sandals
like you know who
no need to decide if I prefer
my Wayne's coffee cold or hot
with or without hazelnuts
there's a feeling that I have
in my gut that there's more
out there if only I can be
aware of it
and take care of it
beware of it but not
be too scared by it
learn to love it and
to share it
and live a life
that's worthy of merit
