The First Shrike

(Still Waiting-Inpending / Hernando County Florida)

I Know Nothing


All do know
that life
sometimes
is easy

So therefore
as previously
stated
a rough life
I do some times
live

When from
your mouth
the things
that you say

Can you not just
speak softly

Is would ask

For a full life
it is

I wish to live

Please call me
not lazy
no effort
put forth

Simple words
writing to cope
is my fix

Not hooked
on drugs
like so many
before

Just a pat on the back
would do me quite
well

An expression of
appreciation
may all so recieve
