Sometimes this old heart wonders
I wonder why God
keeps this old heart beating
Is it because he knows
he will never be me
Not that he
would ever want to be

the philosophy of JazzBoPoetJoe

A beatnik's last diatribe:

Try to live your life with honor and faith
in a fashion that lets you look forward to
the welcoming peace and comforting rest
of death's blessed blessed oblivion
It's long sweet peace of rest
Try to be like Jesus
this sinner failed miserably
