Be The Judge

Ever heard a people reproach Alcohol so much yet embrace hashish

A laggard begging for alms yet dictate to you what to give

People pontificating about God in the day

Yet communing with pantheons at night

 

Ever been midway into a book and short of what to write

Ever been in the middle of a session and lost steam to continue

Ever shut a noisy chick up because she was faking an accent

Have you ever agreed to an argument just to allow for peace to reign

 

Ever been eager to hop into a bus and the door was latched

Ever heard a 7 year old miss query her mother

Why she spoils her sleep with screams at night

Thinking she was praying, while she in fact was straddling in fulfilment

That her prayers had come true with Jack, the labourer

 

Ever heard a father say to his daughter who had come of age

Not to do with anyone that which he does with her best friends

Ever heard that!

 

Ever seen a boy calling his father’s bluff

Paying the same mistress for the same stuff

His father, a perfect attorney made to huff and puff

Ever heard a man, be a judge in his own court

To adjudicate between himself and his wife and his son and his mistress?

Ever?
