I Ain'T Got It Like That
I am not going to be chased by sorrow.
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Because I find I can not borrow money,
To produce gifts.
I am not going to lay in deep depression,
Because some one expects me...
To deliver to them their Christmas wish.
And I'm on a fixed income.
Enjoying my basic life!
With a bowl of grits.
God and Jesus will forgive me,
But this year,
The greed that expects for me to feed it...
Can stay clear away from my door.
With expectations I will ignore!
I ain't got it like that!
And ain't trying to get to give it either!
