It's time to grow up and start seeing the world the way it really is and not the way we want it to be.

Oil and Sand




Tease and torment
Is the way of a woman
Bluff and brag
The way of a man
And when the two get together
In the dark autumn night
They grit like oil and sand

Oil and sand
That's all we get for it
Bought for the rich
With the poor man's blood
Oil and sand
Dealt cheap from dictators
Who's going to save you
When they are all gone?

Take time for the day
Make love to each moment
And time for the night
With serious intent
You'll never know
When the trap
Will be triggered
So live in the moment
Till your time is spent

Oil and sand
Make a bad sexual lubricant
My penis, tho great,
Should never be grate
Oil and sand
Is a muck ugly mess
Clean your ducks down with dawn
Before it's too late

Time's come for you now
You're caught in the flow
Can't you feel the wind
At your back?
Yet through sweat and fear
There's a voice in your ear
Saying
Fuck no,
I'm taking it back!

Oil and sand
All in a land
Where religion has
Foretold the End
Oil and sand
And Armageddon
Sounds like one
Hell of a Band!

So go to sleep children
Upon your soft pillows
Dream dreams of dreaming
Then dream them again
Lost in your own maze
Will be your undoing
But hush now and sleep
'Cause it's all just
Oil
and
Sand

About Me

My photo
I am from West Virginia. Born in New Martinsville to a minister's family. Traveled around West Virginia and Southern Ohio growing up. The only stability I got was from my mother's side of the family in Boone County. My Great Grandfather on my father's side was preaching in Madison during the Mine Wars. He ran for the state legislature on a pro-union ticket and won only to have the coal companies tie the results up in court so he ended serving only one day out of this term. My Grandfather on my mother's side stood with the miner's at Blair Mountain and died of Black Lung when I was still in my teens. I was raised a Conservative Christian...not a Fundamentalist. Strict separation of church and state based on the understanding that what makes for a good politician is pretty much the opposite of what makes a good Christian. I'm politically radical in that I believe in one man/one vote and the only way to have political equality is to have economic equality. I'm an atheist because once I accepted the fact of my own mortality I found no need for belief in God.
