give me six good reasons to behave

Salvation might just equal contentment
But my temptation seems so damn insistent
So just how in the hell
Am I supposed to be so good?
The rules that "they" say I should live by
Leave out sleepin in, loose sex, getting high
Just give me six good reasons
One would think there's a chance that I could
Society is the reason I'm so messed up
Vices on t.v. so tempting and dressed up
I know, I know, I know
That's what the power button is for
But the fact of it all is I like it
If you've never been bad just go try it
Because in my little corner
I have gone and stopped keeping the score

- born slightly bent butt i'm loving it =)

    This envokes some excellent questions....sometimes we never find answers to. Great pen.

    I enjoyed reading your poetry this morning Landon. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I am going to see if I can write something for a couple contests this weekend. Hope you find the inspiration to do the same. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours. Love, Carol
