Atlantic city had been a haze of slot machines and watred down drinks and loud nightclubs
that often remendedme what disney land could have been ifthatdam mouse wasntallowed
to take over.
Never trust a talking rat.
I had to go through a hellof a divorce because of it.
Good thing her brother was a lawyer cause I might have
actully had something left oh well things are overrated like indoor living.
it's hell gettinga good internet connection in a tent.
But enough time traveling i had more important issues at hand
like my return and some unpaid parking tickets and that whole
court case nonsense your place of business burns down for the fifth time
and people all wanna get uptight hey i preffer to moron my lose
in a casino they said i shoudnt be alone so im just taking doctors orders.
But i had a deadline and it was almost happy hour the library was gonna be packed.
The subject true art and cenorship.
The world around us is totatl chaos so how could you restrict how people expressed
Heaven forbid little tommy reads a bad word
while him and and his best friend huff paint
dear jesus man and i hope they dont play a violent video game.
Sure susan go have random sex with guys of fthe internet
but dont read no cuss word on a poetry wed site
you just might drop dead where you stand.
Its kinda like running a asylum and pretending that everyone there
isnt totally nuts.
No sir lets ignore the real world cause lord knows people
cant filp on the tv and see murder rape fires and war ya gotta
love kids programing.
You cant restrict art for if it"s all the same cookie cutter stuff.
Then is it truley art or just a pretty dellusion.
Ignore the world and it'll run you over.
Life good bad traggic is ment to be shared
the secrets of the soul can rattle in that closet till
madness breaks that perfect image we put.
but what I know.
Never restrict your mind for you will sufficate the soul.
stay proud and crazy forever
