Poetical Intentions

Poetical Intentions 
Poetical Intentions 
There was once an American dream 
A house a job and a car or three with a cat in the yard 
And the yard in Malibu Beach is this dream still out of reach 
What is wrong with this picture is the angle of the stream 
The entrance of the price list the fortune is too steep 
The thing you want for money is my soul 
Just let it tremble all away the underneath of tree is fine for a place to lay me 
down to sleep just keep the drunks and murderers from me and let me rest in 
peace and poverty 
Hard at work or hardly working are you holding up that fence by leaning on it are 
you concerned at all with the work to hand 
What-what-what am eye paying you for where is the thing where is the fun the toil 
and sweat is left somewhere else to do today 
Eye must begin to win the poverty away to gamble and to theft 
To golden gods and goddesses bereft   
Eye am a poet with intentions.
