Even if you are divine, you don’t disdain male consorts. ~Michelangelo
I got everthing.
He lets me sleep in the barn;
he takes me to the crick;
he keeps me kickin.
He guides me down the backroads
Fer the sake of his good name.
Even when I hitchhike
through the holler,
I’m not skeered
Cuz you hitchhike with me.
Yer fishin pole and yer stick—
they pertekt me.
You set out cornbread n chicken fer me
right in front of dem bad foke.
You warsh my head in motor oil;
my beer is so full I spilled it!
Yep, goodness and fishin love
will stay with me everday of my life,
and I will hangout at the LORD’s shack
Fer long as I live.
He drew a circle that shut me out–
Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout.
But love and I had the wit to win:
We drew a circle that took him in.
The man who foolishly does me wrong, I will return to him the protection of my most ungrudging love; and the more evil comes from him, the more good shall go from me.~Buddha
