Dog Eat Dog
“I just don’t care,”
I tried to pretend,
As if nothing could bother me,
Ever again.
But for this insidious world,
I could not prepare,
For a dog-eat-dog world,
Where I’m wearing milk bone underwear.

Breadwinner
Transcripts, Manuscripts,
Dog-eat-dog, cut-throat,
Get ahead or say
GOODBYE

To tomorrow
Who stares me down,
Menacingly it approaches.

Waste not, want not,
Waste brain, no gain,

No survival
Not cut out
To be breadwinner.

DOG EAT DOG

A MAN 
LYING ON THE SIDEWALK.
NOT STOPPING TO 
CHECK HIS WELFARE.  
SEEING A MAN
SLAPPING 
A WOMAN.
LOOKING 
THE OTHER WAY.
NOT WANTING
TO GET INVOLED
NOR CARING.
WE  LIVE IN A 
DOG EAT DOG WORLD
WHAT DOES GOD THINK OF US?
DOES ANYONE
REALLY CARE?
 ABOUT ANYTHING?
YIKES

I feel like an adult in a world full of kids...
I feel like an adult in a world full of kids
where life consists of bets and bids
No-body counts and no-body cares
It's dog eat dog, when no-one shares

Wouldn't it be nice to just stop and sit
Not to think, to just watch for a bit
To sit and stare as the world passes by
To have no reason to worry or cry...

Predators
Predators



Sharks darting under the sea
Do you swallow your prey with glee?
Snake squirming up the pile
I heard you ate a crocodile
Eagle swooping free and loose
I see you’re ready to catch a goose
TV viewer and nature lover
You are the one to discover
We are hunters straight from birth
In a dog eat dog, vicious earth

Live, Laugh, Love


Little babies are born
Into a world that has a
Vicious, 'Dog eat dog!'
Environment.

Long days pass
Amid the chaos of war.
Ugly scars mar beauty, while
Gaiety is almost non-existent.
How can life be so cruel?

Listen to the call for peace, to
Overcome ruthlessness.
Visualize a better life, where
Everyone lives, laughs, and loves.


             ~~~~~...

THE TEACHER AND THE FOUNDLING
THE TEACHER AND THE FOUNDLING


Dirty raw face
Lost in a vicious
Dog-eat-dog world ,
His tears washed rivulets
Into my chalky hand .

Dissolving into
My soft inner soul ,
He sensed mother
And clung to the skirts
Of my conscience.

My  home’s warm respite ,
Another world of gentle feeling ;
Before the return to darkness
And bruised cold fingers
In beer bottle bedrooms .

Jem To Kill a Mockingbird
No, sir Atticus
I am not leaving
I am not like a beaver, who runs and hides
In the sight of danger
Who am I, you may ask
A boy who is older, and so much bolder
I will stick by your side Atticus
Sitting in that court room
Everything came to me in a rush
And boom
He is crushed
Why Dad, can they do that
I’m so mad
Now I see how people treat people
Dog eat dog around here
I can’t bear it

get your own
gain at other expense is something i can't codome-
to  it's just way to show you can't do it on your own-
we all have a mission each woman, man, boy and girl , 
yet we act like this is a dog eat dog world-
they say it's equal oppertunity regaurdless of our creed or color
so why is it so hard to succeed without stepping on each other.
we can get alone in this world if we all pitch in and try 
,for somehow i truly believe that everyone deserve a piece of the pie.
