Let’s cut the cord
of discord
since I’m bored
with you
never having
never giving
because you’re living
beyond your means
and child support payments
are few and far between.
“I had a dream,”
that one day
you and your child would remain
connected
despite our defection
but instead of your affection,
there were only false hopes, disappointments
upsets and rejection.

Let’s cut the cord
of discord
since you can’t afford
to spend time or even spare a dime.
Goodbye.
No love lost for a lost love,
in our case water is thicker than blood.
“Depart from me,”
I never knew you–
I got half a mind to sue you
the cord is cut.

Shout!

SHOUT

“I’m gonna tear down those walls,” he whispered

and I wanted to shout.

I’m tired of being restricted and oppressed– beyond my control

I lust for freedom to explode like a cannon ball.

“I’m gonna to tear down those walls,” he teased

and I wanted to burst.

I’m made stronger when tossed and turned

within a swelling storm–spurred to hold on.

Tear down these walls and build again in soil firmer

and more fertile than ever before.

After the seventh time, Jericho fell to the ground.

But I only need one ride on this merry-go-round

to shout…

and have these walls come tumbling down.

SHOUT!

“I’m gonna tear down those walls,” he whispered

and I wanted to shout.

Cuz’ I’m tired of restrictions and oppressions beyond my control

I want to be free to explode like a cannon’s ball.

“I’m gonna to tear down those walls,” he nudged

and I wanted to burst.

When it’s rough more is done

and I’m made stronger when tossed and turned within a swelling storm

spurred swiftly to hold on.

“Tear down these walls,” I concede.

Then rebuild in more firm and fertile soil to breed.

After the seventh time, Jericho fell to the ground.

But I only need one ride on this merry-go-round

to shout and have these walls come tumbling down.
