Food of life

Here’s to you, the sweet food of life
the struggle the pain the strife
blood fights won blood fights lost
Rising from knees at any cost
Here’s to you, you son of a bitch
One arm behind, rope’s half hitch
As hard as you try to tie the knot
you’re not as tough as once thought
Thrown  brown bottles and broken glass
I’ve dodged your throw and kicked your ass

  2. Right on, OC!!! Must keep kicking the-bad-of-life’s ass!
    Great poem…good message…good flow…love the way you wrote it!
    How is everyone doing tonight?!
    I’m usually out painting the town red on Friday nights, but tonight I am home with Coops…as he is in recovery mode from his surgery on Tuesday. We’ll find a good dog movie (ha!) and snuggle up in his dog-paw blanket to watch it. Too bad we don’t have any hot dogs in the house…it could be a really real dog night! 😉 😛
    HUGS and Happy Whee-kend!!! 🙂
