Trying to Grow Up

Once you understand
that guilt is chemical
it begins to make more sense.


One day this one kid said something
SO provocative and surprising
that for sometime the ole man wondered
if THIS was the way things were supposed to be.


It’s almost impossible to live around here
and NOT be human…(at least partially).


An ole sore head kicking at trash in the subway
said to somebody, “I hear intelligence has a record out,
but it’s not on the charts.”  (Kick, kick.)


For those who truly like things named,
were they to gang up, hold me down
and force another from me,
I guess we could call This Kinda Stuff,
“Trying To Actually ‘Grow Up’ While
You’re Still Alive To Enjoy It.”  (Now there! Happy?)
