    Selected Poem
King of the Fools
It's funny how people become
inspired by my lies.

My mind: a collection of stories
that I either took part in
or knew someone who did
or thought how cool it would have been
to do it.

Either way they're my stories now
and people listen when I tell them.
People need to hear what I have to say
because it makes their private hell
a little bit better.

they think about loose women
and drinking too much.
staying out too late,
going to jail,
walking in the rain,
beating the hell out of some
punk that should have known better,
or having the hell beat out of me
and then laughing about it...
they live vicariously through me
it's like watching a TV show for them
but instead of adding electricity to make it work
just buy a few drinks
and the performance will start.

I don't know when it will end or if it ever will
but what I do know
is the bar is my home
and the drunks and the whores
and the two bit con men
are my people
I'm the King of the Fools...

and tonight I'll go to the bar
and I'll get drunk as hell
and tell a few lies
and people will listen
and I'll be back on my throne
fooling the fools once again

The only trick is:

I don't try to separate the lies from the reality
because to tell you the truth...

I really can't
