Barely alive

dive in

can’t win

bee hive


getting too loud

flying through

these clouds

of chemicals

blinding me

drive away

noise is all

I hear


all I see

what’s that

you say

as you pray

to your TV

imagine there’s

no God

and try hard

to believe


when I say

that all the prayers

you pray

fall on deaf ears

year after year

time to put down

the beer

and crawl

out of the pew

get up

off your knees

here’s what you

can do…

stop listening

to others

including me

but especially the news

the booze is used

to numb you

TV is used

to dumb you


the truth is lost

but I have found

that to sleep


your mind has to

be free

and then

you’ll wake up

to see
