I have seen “a lot” become “alot”;
“all right,” “alright”; and “crap,” respectable.
And I have seen “diversity”
come to mean “conformity,”
and now, alas, “adult” means “pornographic.”
The other day I told a man
that in my lifetime songs had gone
from celebrating love to celebrating rape.
And he replied his research showed
“a monster market for that stuff,”
adding as he walked away
before I had a chance to speak,
“It’s gonna pay.”
Answers only matter to the weak.
Everybody says that life is meaningless.
The planet’s doomed, and soon we’ll all be dead.
But as my broker’s always said,
“Adversity means opportunities.”
He wants me to invest in nursing homes
and assisted living communities.
