Work Habits
January 6—January 31, 2016

1st: A human b works hard to teach love his enemy. To help unite all mankind free, or that being yet human; so go the second mile, hold the other cheek brave, not meek! For we're All-One! Exceptions eternally none! ABSOLUTE NONE!

Blue denim overalls

Go Bernie.

Ya Deadheads were always the superior race Need none, GIMME SOME.

Thy kingdom come.

No fame here, come-on take a breather Same foot as your candelabra

Love a young anarchist

Aesthetics, the human condition in a time of plead Oh Glory, take me home

A Geranium to keep me warm

No toilet barriers Just condoms used as pillows Duct tape on That mouth of his, I sit on you.

I won't stare at you Jesus

Let's walk this fine pagan line

I'm stable, I really am

Wine please? "But there are no blankets"

I was feral even with a fur

Dirty even in YSL, Margiela banana

Let's commune on this thought

Harmony in the sewer, you food color swine

Mystic Mama, up yours, yo mamma

Ticky tacky, sneaky deaky.

They came a rescue so dramatic it was worthy of a Hollywood movie, the YPG and YPJ militias,

without heavy weapons or air cover
