Oh Well What The

by George Hoerner

The world is well
On its way to hell
If not already there
If not there then where
And is there any matter
could we be any sadder
Or should we let it go
And just say ho ho ho
Each has his own reason
Regardless of the season
Half the world runs toward death
The rest prefer to take their form of meth
But it comes to us all if not fast then slow
So if you can take slow with a glass of Merlot

I will not say the typical, I wish I had a dollar for every time I uttered that word, which would make me richer than Midas. A word which I find, unlike most people, perhaps, quite delightful and self assured in its sound which is very masculine and forceful to be certain and much misunderstood in its time. I think it high time we rallied around the word and not condemn it to -----------------hail, hail, the unmentionable!

Worthy capture of our times, George. Half the world runs toward death The rest prefer to take their form of meth...so true. I take my Merlot with an ice cube; the heathen that I am. :)

everyone's got their own custom tailored poison.. no cure for us but to wink out of existence; maybe that's the goal - self induced extinction... the world will go right on and cure itself once man is gone for good - whether by shipping ourselves off-world, or all of nature rises up against us. No Merlot for me, I'll take Riesling ;)

If you follow the media, this seems to be the way of things, but I will lift my glass and drink to those who continue to grow gardens and strong souls, and faces turned to the sun instead of the artificial light. I liked your riff on reason and season, George. Cheers!
