Hey Hey
Listen up ya'll
Got somethin' somethin' to say

To my dismay
Many lyrics today
Lack redeeming value

Spew Spew Spew
Rhyme after rhyme
Contagious, adhesive slime

Not a crime
Watch you descend
Amidst charcoal ashes
As a one hit wonder trend

Many obsessed
Engulfed in cloudy confusion
Lusty Dissolution
Innate sexual craze
May be a shallow
Transient phase
Act too impulsively
Could haunt the rest of yo' days

Take a daily dose
My love potion number five
For the everlasting jive
Yo' relationship need to survive

Begin with a solid base-
Similar values,
Trust & Honesty
Heavily floured with reciprocity
Add a layer of kindness & compassion
Take it slow
Nothin' wrong being old fashion
Middle layers your personal flare
Mix & mingle them as you dare
Top it off
Remain loyal
During times of turmoil
Sprinkle with spontaneity
To taste

    welll done....many pieces published as poetry should be entries in a spewing private diary.....the elevation of a level of 'art' would be a delightful experience occasionally....i agree....
