Nobody's Business If I Do (Origilnal 04 01 2010)


NOBODY’S BUSINESS IF I DO:
Original 04 01 2010


Sing one old song… “This Bitter Earth…”
Nobody’s business if I do

Events surprise in seldom habituated
Innocence –screams aloud that object
Of impulsive fear
Poignant infrequent relationships bedazzling
An obscure Patent Clerk of noble selection
Last never least of many

Ordained head of suitable disciple companies
Esoteric genteel shooting stars indoctrinated
Poll Northerly –sings off key
Rising student nonviolent coordinating
Dimensions on paper charters written for
Free ghetto children breakfasts

Underwritten by that Constitution nation
Set aside belief re-represented in moral
Value sunset to sunrise
On the event horizon surprise information
Can be heard in gut-bucket lyric about
Blame not ashamed

An old blues tune “If I go out on Sunday…?
Nobody’s business if I do.”
