Loss Of Memory

If  I could I would wipe with spit

Hard drive of my memory’s chip

 

Veritable Pandora’s Box of horror

Come knock jeering at me in furor

 

My loss of innocence at a very tender age

Learning to steal n lie with a straight face

 

Schooling and college gone for a total toss

As I mimed to jell and jive with current boss

 

Shedding of age old accepted behavior patterns

Garbing self in untested designs n wild moderns

 

Respect n reverence shed like day old stale news

Irreverent speech, toneless addressing to attune

 

Stepping stones of labor n perseverance sidestepped

Get rich quick schemes questionable short cuts kept

 

A blemish less family name and soul no longer valued

Voice of conscience in rat race of power ever subdued

 

Eschewing the good and godliness in the self for good

Courting the devil to feather own nest and never brood

 

The sum total of life’s journey finally came to big fat zero

Denying parents, selling soul for gains make no one a hero

 

There are losses and more losses in life’s journey

Honor and sagacity with dignity are the real money

 

If  I could I would wipe with spit

Hard drive of my memory’s chip
