to whom it may concern: thank you!

most in my case would be moaning and pissing;
constantly fussing, and non stop bitching!
with no job and no car and no cash on hand
i have to admit, to some, it doesn’t sound grand.
but me, i’m not gonna quelp about these things;
instead, i’ll be thankful for all that life brings.
like the true love of a woman who tends to my needs
and my tree of life, and my many fresh seeds
and the food in the kitchen, that keeps us fed
and the big ass t.v. at the foot of our bed
and our dogs, they’re so loving, and just full of fun
and the deck that we sit on while we watch them run
and the grandson that lights up a room with his smile
and the stuff that needs doing, and keeps me busy a while
i consider myself blessed, and i’m thankful for all this
but i’m most thankful my lot is not worse than it is
‘cause i’ve been homeless and hungry and alone
i’ve spent more than one lonely christmas by the phone
i’ve wasted holidays in jail, instead of with friends
and i’m thankful i don’t have to worry about those things ever again

to whom it may concern: thank you! by 


i am notoriously glum during the “holiday season”; and i have been for as long as i can remember. this year i decided to take stock in the things i’ve got, instead of the things i don’t; and be happy for the next month or so instead of being a humbug. wish me luck!

i’m just another maniac trying to get along as best i can in a cold and crazy world.
