Life is hazing
people dazing
have you ever pulled a gun inside your head?
blow out your brain and still have your mind instead...


those words sound nice but don't come right in bed
waking for a drill but drinking at a bar for bread

life is joking
people choking
ever wonder why the old man just laughs at you?
smiles at your position, knows that your a dead man too...

Inner voices

Awkward choices
Mail bride orders

Thumbing borders
Hoping wishes
Easy dishes

Washing dreams
Alien schemes
Lion cowards
Rusty showers
Utilized mirrors
Synchronized prisoners

life is smoking
people toking
notice how your eyes have turn out to be a no hand clue
is it me or now you turn to know your crazy too?

coo coo ca choo coo coo ca choo...

    great ending, that line from the song about crazy Mrs.Robinson! I enjoyed this one. I was trying to see why you called it acrostic. But I noticed the acrostic part kicked in at the middle part with a Beatle's song title! That was cool.

    Smile ~ one flew east, one flew west, one flew over the coo coos nest and, yes, tis makes myself consider the wisdom spoken of removing oneself from babylon and also finding the joy of promise beyond the valley of death ~ also my dear there seems to be a couple of slight typos within this darkly humorous yet wonderful painting of a lovely verse; excellent food for thought ~ "love, Always, christopher ~
