People say nothing is impossible.
But, I don’t care what they say!
I know nothing ain’t impossible,
cause I do nothing every day!

I’m not afraid to face death!
Facing it is fine!
My only stipulation is,
the death I’m facing ain’t mine!

Life can be a puzzle.
That I will admit!
Cause 10% is what happens to us,
and 90% is how we react to it!

It happened without much notice!
Entirely, without my consent!
All of a sudden, my ole git up and go
has just done, got up and went!

I used to get excited,
when a nice young chick walked by!
Yeah, I used to get excited 
but now, I can’t remember why!

Jack and Jill went up a hill,
to fetch a pail of water!
Now, Jill is living all alone!
I guess her husband caught her!

There was an old woman
who lived in a shoe.
She had so many children
till she discovered, what not to do!

Here’s what I think about strangers.
I hope you will never forget!
There really are no strangers,
just friends, you haven’t met!

I read some quotes from Mark Twain.
One that stood out, that I saw,
“Adam, was the luckiest man in the world,
cause he had no mother-in-law!”

Love Thy Neighbor says the Bible.
Which sorta scares me a bit!
Loving Thy Neighbor may seem ok,
just don’t get caught at it!
