    YOU THINK I AM A DAMN FOOL
    YOU THINK YOU CAN DEPEND ON ME
    YOU ONLY CALL ME WHEN YOU WANT SOMETHING
    YOU CALL ME TO BUY YOU SOME CIG.
    YOU CALL ME TO BRING OUR GRANDCHILD OVER
    YOU CALL ME JUST TO TELL ME
    YOU STILL LOVE ME
    YOU THINK I AM A DAMN FOOL
    YOU WANT ME TO STOP THE DIVORCE
    BEFORE IT BECOME FINALLY
    YOU ASK ME TO DO SOMETHING
    WITH YOU
    YOU BAGG ME TO DO STUFF FOR YOU
    YOU THINK I LOVE YOU SO MUCH
    THAT I DO ANYTHING FOR YOU
    GUESS WHAT THAT LOVE IS GONE
    I DONT LOVE YOU NO MORE
    I WISH I NEVER MET YOU
    I CAN'T STAND YOU
    YOU ARE TO JEALOUS
    YOU EVEN JEALOUS OF MY KIDS
    BUT THAT OK
    I KNOW FOR FACT
    YOU THINK I AM A DAMN FOOL
    THAT FUNNY

      I'm like you, getting calls only for favors,
      attracting losers wanting to sleep on my couch,
      getting invited over to help move,
      being fed only to be asked for money.
      I'm sought out to buy something from them
      as a client being done a speacial service
      as they brag about how they convinced
      me to pay them to be my source.
      But I'm on to their scheme and don't know
      when I'm getting paid and I'm too busy to
      allow him in to fool me into helping to start
      his car at 6:00 AM. She calls me in
      between drinks, but my time is taken by
      enough common sense to avoid a drunk
      looking for a desperate lover to cart her
      around from bar to bar with her jail bird
      son who needs a place to live for a while
      until he can contrive a plan to rob a store
      or bank or steal from me to support
      his habit. I'm not a fool, needing losers
      to mooch from me, calling me buddy or
      baby.

        Your poetry is very thought provoking.  I hope you do write a few hubs about it smile.

    Hi PTaylor.  Why don't you make a Hub with your poems instead of posting them on the forums?

    One more thing, using ALL CAPS is not advisable smile

    I think the caps are very effective.

      Not everyone feels the same smile

      Uppercase posts are considered as SHOUTING in today's internet language.

        That's funny, I scarcely hear a thing.  Furthermore, poetry is ART and we should celebrate free expression in that context, even if it entails "shouting."

            I agree with you weblog, you still have the right to share information.  Yes, all caps is considered shouting online and you were just pointing this out.  Not sure why some people are being so defensive about it.

    all caps means one is yelling. maybe that's the effect the writer wanted...
