an irreligious blog
with egalitarian and individualist tendencies!

On the menu ... politics, music, poetry, and other good stuff.
There is humor, but there is blunt seriousness here as well!

Parfois, on parle français ici aussi. Je suis un francophile .... Bienvenue à tous!

"A Sheepish Reply" - by Laurence Overmire

A Sheepish Reply
Laurence Overmire


They told him he was a happy man
And happy so he was
He wore the clothes they told him to
He brushed his teeth, he combed his hair
He said the things they said he would
He married and had kids.

He went to work to work to work
And after work he went to work
To work on something more.

He died a happy happy man
Quite happy so they said
For living such a happy life
What was it to be dead?
