bastard moon

Full moon, you ugly bastard!
Shining down upon me the big piss-yellow eye.

Full moon, you wart covered whore.
Dripping down upon me the shadows of your smuttiness.
You push and pull against my rationale.
You ebb away my sanity.

Full moon, you evil bitch.
Trashing my good being to dried waste.

Full moon, you brutal prick.
Ripping out my heart and crushing it back to dirt.
You stomp upon my love.
You butcher my compassion.

Full moon, you ugly bastard!

Ivan,
Who's Sheryl Crow?

Samdra,
Surprised you, huh?
Was setting on the deck in the middle of the night.
Bright moon shining on the water. Ducks and geese bobbing on the ripples.
Thought most would write something romantic, about getting laid.
Decided to do something opposite.

Erik:
Shery Crow sings pop ditties about having fun in the sun.
But she waxes lyrical when it comes to heartbreak.
What I quoted was from her earlier breakup.
The latest was with Lance Armstrong,the famous bike athlete.
She appears such a succesful songstress that she somehow scares men. "Are you strong enough to be my man?" she sings somewhere.
Pop culture seems trivial but you can't, as a writer, ignore what's going on in the other arts, pop or highbrow. Trivia, I suppose.

Ivan,
"She appears such a successful songstess that she scares men. 'Are you strong enough to be my man?' she sings somewhere".

I wonder, would she be woman enough to be my woman?

I like it. I feel the same way about the birds that sing in the early morning after I've battled insomnia all night. LOL!

Dicker.
