he skips up the 12 steps focusing on
1, 2, & 3. long hair not grey enough
for 60, body taut, nerves keen, happy,
joyous & free. never would have seen this
century, he likes to say. would still be
dead today if jesus hadn’t come his
way. talks a blue streak, he’s a total freak
but he has love in his heart & street smarts.
he talks in circles, stories that don’t end,
quotes from the bible & the beatles. he
can bring the men to their senses & the
women to orgasm. it’s his calling.
the law can’t touch him as much as they try.
the lark’s alright, yes, he’s an upright guy.
