Bring Me Bad

Bring me bad today
my mood is dark
Searching for the elusive
the meanest of the sharks

Think again to defeat me
teeth and sharp claws have I
Show me your worst
I’ll scratch out your eyes

Sit me down in a restaurant
full of love and laughter alone
I won’t bend and I won’t give
all I need is my old cell phone

Loneliness leave me now
in my space with Jose Cuervo©
Mexican music loud all around
not thinking about my futuro

So bring me some bad today
I can handle anything that’s thrown
One misstep one wrong word
you’ll see how bad I’ve really grown

    1. Thank you for your patience and friendship. Your reading of “The Raven” was exquisite and I’m not an Edgar Allen Poe fan! 😊

      1. Most of his poetry is very 19th century but The Raven has stood the test of time.
