There’s nothing wrong with sin.

What gets us is the sin within the sin.

It’s not what you wanted, it was what you had to do

To get that certain shoe.

And when you’re old

You look ridiculous in that shoe, that shoe, exciting and bold.


It isn’t the sin. It’s when you’re relaxing,

What walks in.

Tell her to get rid of her high heels.

It’s snowing, and she’ll fall.

Love her, and find out, deeply, how she truly feels.

Then you discover she never loved you at all.

You find, in the end, she wasn’t a port.

She leaves you. Why? Because she’s afraid she’s too short.


She feels the politics. Her sophisticated views are it.

It’s just a pity the Democratic party is a crime syndicate.

    As Scarriet ombudsman (and Tom’s bud, man), I urge readers who are exercised over the upcoming elections to substitute the following for the last line:

    “It’s just a pity the political city is a crime syndicate.”

    Myself, electorally I follow Gore Vidal’s sage reflection:

    “The last time I voted for president was 1964, when I voted for Lyndon Johnson, the peace candidate.”

      I was reading about the Clintons. (The stink factor is off the charts…)

    Oh isn’t it a pity, oh isn it a shame,

    How we break each other charts,

    Cause each other shame.


    Whats not a shame is how that change is fingered in an open tuning.

    You see, when you get worked up the neck, you’re just not going to get the same resonance.
