Silenced By Death

"It's called the
American Dream,

because you have to be asleep to believe it!"

George Carlin
(12 May 1937 - 22 June 2008)

(eyes open/eyes closed)

woke up and went walking
in the cold darkened rain
thought about the future
it was coming either way

guessed I wouldn't notice
people missing from my day
you'll still be heard talking
eloquent but plain

generating laugher
humour was your way
looking at the world
honouring it's shame

highlighting stupidity
and unnecessary rage
a strong insightful voice
so seldom seen on stage

Time Piece
"It's a big club and you ain't in it!"
