poetry challenge day 25

(the lark) 


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.
