Hopes and Asprin-ations

Hopes and Asprin-ations

A Poem by Bill O. Writes

I wanna be the flagship storming the coast

I wanna be the A list actor

I wanna be the star of the show

Give me a break and some reassurance

I was born and raised where the worms in the earth live

So I’ll wear the second hand torn blouse

I’m no stranger to a dark lit room

I found holy matrimony with a girl in the w***e house

By any stretch this isn’t peace of mind

This is ignorance is bliss

This is love is blind

And if I were told to guess

Id bet my life she was never mine

Throw out the daggers let them fall where they may

The junkie in the attic is dead anyway

This is a ghost town

Run down beat down

Some things will never change

Some men have faith

Some look for strange

Oh if only my mother could see me now

Would she be proud?

Or rip the tongue from my mouth and furrow a brow
