Urban Drunk

I have lived inside the loop for over a decade. I thought I had that urban drunk thing down.
Now that I have lived downtown for a year, I realize I knew nothing.
I still don't think I could do the full #BillPowell

I smoke too much.
I drink too much.

I chase wild women.
Everything my parents told me would lead to ruin.
Guess Willie and Merle knew better than my folks.

On Death

John C. Calhoun is still dead.
Am I supposed to respect his family?

My St. Paul's

As If

I began my political responsibility as an ultra-conservative. I wanted the Kaiser to come back; and now I am a revolutionary. I really mean that. If I live to be a hundred I shall maybe be an anarchist, for an anarchist wants to do without all government.

And the canard goes, "people get more conservative as they get older."

I'm with Martin Niemöller.
