Worst Mistake

Poem By KMC Centlivre

I made the worst mistake of my life
I ignored all the warnin’ signs
I made a hard left when I shoulda turned right
And made the worst mistake of my life

Everyone said I was an unlucky guy
Rarely would anything ever go right
Until you came along, such a beautiful sight
I’d only admire from a distance

I got up the nerve to go talkin’ to you
And I never thought you’d do the thing that you’d do
I got some more nerve and I offered to you
My heart and my soul and a dance

What happened then was magic they say
We got on the floor and I swept you away
I was like Fred Astaire in a marvelous way
In a wonderful circumstance

And when the night ended I bid you adieu
It was more than I expected just talkin’ to you
I asked “could I see you? ” you said “don’t mind if you do”
I shuddered that you gave me the chance

Followin’ you home I saw the blinking red lights
The man said “son, you been drinkin’ tonight? ”
I stood and watched you as you drove outta sight
While he put shackles on both of my hands

I made the worst mistake of my life
I ignored all the warnin' signs
I made a hard left when I shoulda turned right
and made the worst mistake of my life

I made the worst mistake
I made the first mistake
I made the worst mistake of my life

(September 2007)

I hate the weather
I hate the cold
I hate the empty dusty roads
I hate the trees without no leaves

Johnny Went To Hollywood

Johnny went to Hollywood
Said he’s gonna be a star
Things didn’t turn out so good
Johnny’s livin’ in his car

Love Thy Neighbor

Jesus said a lot of things, Mohammed said them, too
Moses went to the mountaintop, Dr. King did, too
But, no one really listened to them
Instead they put their pictures on the wall

Space People

Have you heard of the people who live in the skies?
(I think I seen ‘em)
Some of them are short with big round black eyes
(I never seen them)

Same Ol' Things Happen Over And Over

Here you come again breaking my heart again
Wouldn’t feel so bad about it if I could live without it
I’d look the other way but, that won’t change yesterday
Wouldn’t feel so bad about it if you didn’t brag about it
