Hear The Herds Grazing

-

So I opened my ol' head up

And look what came out

A life time of wonder

And a panic of game

Soon the liars will feel the London bridge

__being brought back from the dead

And you can hear the heards

__of cattle spitting words

As they moo all across where they graze

And the merchants all tell stories

Of how the market brang us trouble

There's no money

__in our pockets

____today

When I saw the business shatter

Like a bowl of grapes here

I began to not wonder

And I just turn to John Stewart

And Steven Colbart

I couldn't stand the regular news

About a country that went from

Being the top of the world

To being the bottomless pit

Of poorness "for all"

So I knewI wouldn't be working

And I feared for my money

Being safe years from now

When I wake ev'ry morning

And my writings are slowed

I can't gather

__much of my thoughts

____too short

I can fall and buy a new string

But right now I am broke

So I'm sitting loading pictures

__to MySpace, of course

IthoughtI might

Love a whore

I thought I might

Lovea whore

I didn't get to keep her

Now I want some more

I didn't get to keep her

Now I want some more

Ithought I might

Love a whor

I thought I might

Love a whore

I didn't get to keep her

Now I want some more

I didn't get to keep her

Now I know

__oh no, I know

____no ho

Goodbye

My sweet misunderstood Suzy

Goodbye

I guessI don't know what

I'm gonna

__find out

WhenI get checked for crabs

But I'll find out where you are

__whenI move to

____your town

Some how

Brain of drugs

I swoffle and drorph

Spin, spin, sprinkle, of course

And maybe my writing hand

Can go off and wear and tare

Thru pages of books with a pen

My mighty sword for words

Contimplate with me

How we all could stop to dream

Then wake up to a bottle

And submerge yourself to health

Get down and throw up

As you boogie on the floor

May you be willing, God

To show me who I want?

Or will I just keep on writing

Waiting to find out myself?

I'd care for somebody

__who'd drag me down

____and grab me of the hills of my high

Loosen her grasp

__on the neck of mine

And maybe settle down with me

__and be so very

____very

______fine

But The Cartoon Network

__don't have The Loony Toons

____that I onceknew

"Oh well,whatever"

I'll turn on the news

Oh, wait

It's all bad

Well, I'll ditch the Tv. screen

__for now, 'til I get around

And can handle America's problem
