15 minutes of earth shattering, mind numbing,
Chest beating, brow wiping, God screaming,
World rocking, fast breathing pleasure followed by
A stale Marlboro and the cycle of life begins.

9 months of “I look fat” talkin’, “fix me a
Banana and pickle sandwich”, eatin’ eye wipin’,
Crying over nothing weepin’, Boobs are getting’ bigger
(Cheerin’), wishin’ this was over (then her water broke at church)

6 hours of gut wrenching, ear piercing, wife screaming,
Finger nails embedded in my arm (bleeding),
Slowly racing to the hospital at rush hour,
Breathing, pushing, breathing, pushing, “look dear, it’s a boy.”

18 years of eating out of house and home,
“Dad I need to borrow the car, I got another speeding ticket”,
“Can you loan me twenty bucks?” More Ds than Cs
On the report card, and finally he’s a man.

“Dad, you got some cigarettes, mine are stale?”

All that is necessary for the forces of evil to win the world is for enough good men to do nothing...Edmund Burke

Insanity is inherited
Insanity is inherited, we get it from our kids.

I don't know who said it first, certainly not me, but it is still true as you have so aptly pointed out.

Cycle of Life
Thank you Nitz and Blondie, glad you liked it. I was afraid I might be bordering on overstepping the PG limit for this forum.

psycho classic
I don't know, this might not be heralded as a literary classic, or even noteworthy to most folks. But I think it is definitely a psycho classic, tells the true story of how we got here and why we are this way,…

Oh yeah, now I get it, that stale malboro is still stale...18 years later.

Buy yer own! I say

Love it
