I’m under no illusion I suffer no delusion Life’s no fucking cakewalk at the best of times But I will not surrender I know it will get better No matter how tall the mountains I must climb   And though the path grows steeper The shit I wade through ever deeper I keep hoping the […]

I’m not here to entertain Nor am I intentionally profane To make you laugh is not my aim Cracking jokes is not my game But if I happen to raise a smile Then I’d say it was worth my while Sometimes I joke, at times I jest But provocation’s what I do best I want […]
