fool never gets the blues

looking at this fool grinning on the tv

you know he went to a good school

the right kind of university

laughing about his writing

how it all came so easily

like he never gets the blues

his silver spoon shining in the sun

& that’s why I can’t read his stuff

the dum de dum de da

poor rhyme moon in June guff

& I wonder late into my sleepless night

is what I got just deep green jealousy?

on the closed shops these people create

maybe so because I do get the blues

on why no talent rich kids get the print

while I can’t write the hearts & flowers

for the easy money flowing in

get to be the happy go lucky fella

living life in lint
