The Poet Lives


Scratchin' and scrapin'
and scrounge to get by,
everyday an adventure,
makes the time fly.
Waiting and wondering
and chasing pipe dreams,
always i ponder for
new plots and schemes.
Selling and scamming,
and still end up broke,
starts to turn
into a sad old joke.
Thriving and jiving
and copping a rush,
if i can't make you giggle,
i'll make you blush.
Laughing and loving
and drinking in life,
i like to argue,
but i don't like to fight.
Jumping and leaping
about like a freak,
but i get my kicks
when i start to speak.
Looking and learning
and losing the game,
losing it all and
going totally insane.
Knowing and growing
and change everyday,
don't make much money,
but it sure pays.
Rockin' and walkin'
and scopin' the scene,
try to keep loving,
and free as the breeze.
Gasping and gulping
to take it all in,
looks like i'm losing,
but i always win.
Dancing and prancing
and checking it out,
makes me an odd one,
without a doubt.
Wonder and whisper
and ask me what for,
can't tell you why,
but i'm rarely bored.
