Bamboozled No More! Tell the Rats to Jump Ship!


 

I want the best
no more willingness to abandon dreams
for bargain brand happiness.

I want what I want
the real thing…
the joy, the love, the good and the BAAD that is great
(like when James Brown shouted ….” get on with your BAAAD self!”)
no time for half stepping.

Let the others eat the 3 day old cake.
I want the best of yesterday, today and tomorrow which means
I must be willing to give more than I might get.
life is gamble….
and guess who needs new shoes?
Hell I am ordering new boots
for kicking the buts and butts
that get in my way!
Can I get an AMEN?
Louder, I don’t hear you!
