Innocence

“So, you think money is at the root of all evil Mom”
“That’s right child.”
“But why Mom? Don’t we need money to survive? How would we eat if we had no money.”
“The same way we do now,” replied Mom.
“But we do eat well Mom! We must have money now?”
“That’s correct child, we do eat well. Your Dad gives us food money whenever he gets his paycheck.”
“So then Mom, what’s so evil about money?”
“When you grow up I’ll tell you what your Dad does with the rest of his money.”
“Uh?’ a confused child goes back to play.

Arm in Transit

Humans are celebrating in the store.
We have it better in here, the girls are naked.
It’s not as much fun with one arm though.
Some girl didn’t have enough and kept my hand.
But it was attached to my arm. She still has it.
I got some weed now and feel no pain. Can you tell?
