Neighbor lady abused

Updated on December 30, 2013

so I am no good, will you please make up for me?

I just this thing, Waltzing, well I work at it. But I fall back on tango and four step!
I just this thing, Waltzing, well I work at it. But I fall back on tango and four step! | Source

I did not know that Mary was being abused by husband Joe!

Well shame on me and double shame on me and hit me with a shovel and a pick and kick my butt to the curb.

I just spoke to the Sheriff deputies and another neighbor and passed out my cards and gave her a key to my house. I did what we do.

One time I fell down and broke my nose. I big brother set it back. I momma made me learn this song. What up?

But I damned well did not do like we should do. Amen I sinned.

I closed my stupid eyes and did not pay attention. Take me Lord to the edge of town and stone me for I did not care enough to notice.

I am up there in the coooool coool breeze floating around like a butterfly. And I allowed two children to be in danger.

Today I hate myself.

Help me care more deeply o Lord I am not competent on my own.


I worked for my mother.

I am not ashamed of that for she was a great and smart and powerful lady. I worked for her as she saw fit as a consigliere. My hands were dirty with work that a Corporate board of Directors cannot get hands dirty. I am a dirty man. I fix shit that is broke and I do not care of legalities yet I have a doctorate in law.

I has never killed a man but people have died because of my decisions. That is my burden and only mine.

Well it was time for momma to have funeral memorial. There were hundreds there. I tossed the microphone aside and spoke in a voice that sounds like Harry Belafonte and Dean Martin all mixed up and can boom to thousands. Momma always love me singing Matilda.

It was time to tell the secret of my momma.

My momma hired me in 1984 to smuggle young women out of Arizona to California where they had more rights against "husband fathers".

Money was an issue so we struggled and all those judges and lawyers and doctors would have fried her ass if they knew. Well by my scattered mind we helped about 30 good women. Wrong or right, I really do not give a good dogdamn. I still weigh in at over 220 but I am not tough like I should be.

Yes I broke my neighbors nose with a head butt, And I sweep kicked down and applied pressure on his throat with my knee and had my foot on his groin. (get the picture) But he is healthy in the back of a squad car.

Too godamn little and too damn late. Peace be on all but me for I did not help quick enough.

And yes I just went and gave him a card for a great lawyer. And told him that my door is always open for anyone in anger.

And the silly pointy is this

I do not want you to be a hero. In any dangerous way. I want you to be safe. Even though I am a jerkass you do not need to be one.

Love is all it takes. Be tough on yourself and do the wrong thing.

There was a boy hanging with his possee' and they were just hanging out at a wedding party. His momma made him change the water into wine. What up with wine and moms anyhow

Whoopi and Whoopy would you help me out?

I just do not do this thing called life right. I write for a living and I love to live to write. That is no way to be me. But you people love to live life and you can help me be better.

I am weak but you are strong. Please love each other.

      Well, Eric, we've all done wrong and we've all done right. I've been a hero and a devil. But I will keep looking for the next opportunity to do good to someone around me. I know you've done that too. Thanks for the reminder of the paradox within.

      Billy my feet are dancing in four languages right now. Because you love me and bring me back up and then slap me and pick me up again. This thing called life will work out. Because we have each other!

      Eric, you right from the heart and sometimes it is a kick in the head..lol. Your hubs are never dull, and I never know what to expect. Love them or hate them you always make one pause and think, especially about themselves. Well done. P.s. In the title of your first paragraph, you may change 'now' to 'know'.

      Anger or fun... the hubs you write are filled with beauty and words arranged greatly, and well constructed sentences. Well my friend 'Love All and Leave Hate' are the words that every one should carry in their minds all the time. And, as well, equality is another important issue all should have in their thoughts. I am glad to have a good friend like you :)

      What I gather from this wonderful poetic stuff that one should be beyond good and bad while living. These opposites sap the juice of life and some guys are repenting for being reckless while some crave for a place beside the Master of all. Eric, you raise the question and give the answer too. You show the door to us to enter and also the keys to open it. I love the stuff that gives jolts to the mind,heart and soul and wakes us up.

      Hey Harishprasad, you are raising the bar of thinking. You are raising this boy up to live and learn more. Are you an Angel sent just for me?!

      Just walk into my street today and love somebody, they need you.

      My 3 year old son just learned to really hold my hand. When he was younger I would hold his hand and "walk him" places. Now we both hold hands and we walk together.

      I am bestowed with love when you "walk with" me. Let us not let go of each other's hand.

      Eric - I am crying, but that is OK. Actually it is better than OK.. In my life tears signify incredible beauty, sorrow, or incredible truth. This time of course, it is because of your clarion call to truth, to seeing and caring for others, to opposing injustice whenever we can. The hold hands and walk together metaphor speaks to my soul. Blessings. Theresa

      None of us are perfect Eric. We err, and we misjudge, we even miss cues. The main thing is we try and we love. You are certainly guilty of that and so we are glad to call you friend. God Bless, and Happy New Year.

      My lady I bow one knee and put hat in hand and beg that you forgive. For it was not a man hurt but a fine lady like you and I guilty of treason against our humanity.
