Your birthday is near, right? Damn the recession! Treat yourself to a good book that’s fun to chat about. Buy Plain as Sand. In it you will find:
A little romance would be nice.
I’m not asking for moons and stars.
Just a pet and a stroke
Before the jab and the poke
Would brighten our stagnant boudoir…
Can a Man Have a Drink
Don’t nag me while I drink.
I’m trying to change my mood.
I don’t want your company,
Don’t need your help, sex, water or food…
To My Face
To my face, he called me “n” word.
Snarled it, boldly, with contempt.
Maybe he feels I’m unworthy,
Common decency exempt…
…and many more great poems.
