Chapter 135
Laying at the Altar of the Sacrificial Goat.

























Life is a lexicon

Living is a joke

If you lay at the Altar

Of the Sacrificial Goat.


Chase your tail on Sundays

For Mondays mean work

Then it's downhill till Friday

Where the weekend's a perk.

Procrastination's hopeless

Just get on with the task,

Talk's unproductive

 Ya got a problem ...Ask!


Wallow in self pity

Bog down in morass,

Run tedium's risk

Or they'll whip your white ass!

Tally up windfalls

Forget losing streaks,

Accentuate positives

For this winning week.


Headaches are agony

Gut aches are worse

If you think it's terminal

Take a pill, hire a hearse.

Big tantrums electrify

Ranting's the pits,

A ceremonial sacking

Gets on everyone's tits.


So your broke again

Who cares a stuff?

Try finding employment

And doing it tough!

Popularity's purile

And grease balls are out,

It's better to wing it

Than be labelled a flout.


Indulgence in flattery

Makes you hyper aware,

Disdainful admirers

Gather to stare

Urgencies devotion

Is a bridge overcome

Philosophies vinegar

In honeyed hum drum


Remember... Life is a lexicon

And living's a joke

If you lay at the Altar

Of the Sacrificial Goat.
