Shame on Me.

I put my hat on backwards –
to straighten out my crooked head,
it doesn’t always do the trick,
but it keeps me out from under the bed;

I ride my surfboard goofy –
because that’s just how I roll,
it’s too hard to break the chains,
to the habits that we know;

I drive around much faster –
than I am supposed to be,
but if I don’t, the masses,
will surely get the best of me;

I give much more freely –
than I ever really should,
I suppose this may be because,
of my collection of nickels made of wood;

I am not an idiot –
in contrast to the things that I may do,
I am simply surviving,
just trying to make my own way through.

    Love this. Rhythm and purpose.

    No way….Are you seriously a fellow goofy foot? You sayin that takes me way back to my skateboard days all those coughing to disguise the number years ago when I was just a long hair transportationless stoner. HEHE. Good times before the bad ones.

    Just trying to make it through. I agree. I think we all have to do what it is we must do to make our lives more forward. Regardless of whether it is conventional or not…
