Dead dog in the street

Flies circle around the wound

Dinner shall be served


Hanging around coffee shops

makes you really want to kick someone


My family is Irish

That means that we are really good at drinking


Everything on the radio is crap now,

What happened to the blues?


Politicians are like dogs.

They spend alot of time sniffing ass.


Sometimes the voices of people crawl

on my skin like any colonies


I don't give a damn about William Shakespeare.

So there goes the small talk.


Waffle house waitress

Big nasty mole on your face

Lost my appetite


Signs on the boardwalk

The beach will be closed today

Sharks in the water.


Green beads on my rosary

Haven't been to confession in three years.


Dew on the roses

The morning sun comes like a demon in the sky


Rational Universe

A lazy dog sleeping on a new sofa.
