i’d rather be a donkey than a mule

a mule is an elephant with long shiny ears
who never forgets a grudge
thus never learns
independence of choice
never earns
by flaunting God
with human voice
“He told me to do it.”
when caught with hand in US cookie jar,
“The Devil made me do it.”

have i gone too far
tween braah and jar?

heaven help us hooligans
dancing in the dark
won’t you come around soon
o full of the moon
our moon
one more time again, Charlie
here comes the sun
it’s all right
