Mean and Green

The wife and I watched Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead

It got stuck in her head

It’s all about juice fasting

Guess who she’s casting

Me

I’m going on a juice fast

She says it’s gonna be a blast

I’m sipping a glass of green yuk

What the #@!$

It already started — no way!

Not a month of drinking hay

But I still get coffee for a week

Ah, she’s so sweet

My little wife

Doing her best to extend my life

But I’m not taking meds

I’m not half dead

I’m not fat and slow

I’m always on the go

Why did the Australian make that show

Now all my food has to go

Why wasn’t it on beer and wine

Now that would be a good time

Let Your Fear Disappear

Let’s be clear

On the topic of fear

Is it the dark

Is it the fact

Everyone thinks you’re a mark

Nobody has your back

When you’re attacked

Living in that home

Wishing everyone would leave you alone

You’re thinking Darwin was right

The pecking order requires you to fight

Again and again

That revolving door seems to never end

The key to success is finding a friend

There is someone around you can trust

This action is a must

Be careful who you pick

Don’t fall for a trick

Look for somebody your own age

Don’t feed in to each other’s rage

The answer is not a gun

The question is

How do you have fun

The more you laugh

The more you smile

The more you reject

The system’s bile

It keeps your heart clean

Which stops you from being mean

It’s not cool to fail

It’s not cool to go to jail

It doesn’t make you tough

It’s just a bunch of fluff

Coming from kids that are confused

Don’t be that muse

I’ll tell you what’s tight

Standing up for what’s right

Have fun and keep your mind clear

And watch your fear disappear
