More Grooks Part 6
Housewives who pray incessantly
will get little done domestically.
Unless their husband’s are men
who don’t mind living in a pig pen.
Psychologists now say
a child is denied a happy life
as soon as its father conceives it
with a woman not his wife.
In the pursuit of happiness –
and this is bizarre –
there is much unhappiness
say those who are.
Dying begins at conception
a not very auspicious beginning
if its purpose was to bring
life not extinction.
A bird is not the only creature that flies,
adulterous men are known to do likewise.
And whereas no bird ever flies bare
the adulterer that doesn’t is rare.
Some reach a point in their lives
when friends are dropping off like flies.
It’s not very complimemtary,
I grant, though it’s a good analogy.
Driving on the road of life
many fail to look ahead,
focusing on the rearview mirror
to see only what’s behind instead –
more often than not a fatal error.
Religion wears many a hat,
some are tall, others flat,
some are square, still others round,
almost any shape can be found.
Even more amazing than that,
there’s a head to fit every hat!
When nearing the end of our days, it’s said
most dread the few that still lie ahead.
And looking back at those behind
offer little comfort to our peace of mind
for though many and fondly remembered
the record of our sins are far more outnumbered.
Repetition may be
the mother of retention,
but it’s a close relative
Why put off doing today
what you can do tomorrow?
Because knowing you, you’ll say
the same tomorrow.
It used to be that politics
was in the power of honest hands,
these days it’s at the bottom
of deep dishonest pockets.
It must be said with honesty
few practice it honestly.
