Let me know what you think.
I wait patiently in the queue
To buy tickets to visit the zoo.
When I get to the front,
To be perfectly blunt,
I forget what I went there to do!
I made a mistake, I’m to blame;
I know life can ne’er be the same.
I don’t deserve mercy
Just more controversy.
I’ll live with my head hung in shame.
Said no politician ever!
It may be a tad too revealing
To ask someone how they are feeling.
I tried it one time
With a girlfriend of mine.
She said there’s a crack in the ceiling..
I am told that the power of prayer
Is real, that there is someone there.
If the answer is no,
It just goes to show
Your question is wrong – don’t despair.
