- Valid

    Spending time being an adult

    Offer an offending  rhyme beamed at the cult.

    I’d rather be a kid again.

    I’d rather treat and trick again.

    To when my Spider-Man costume fit again.

    This enduring experiment

    Has me concurring in fear again

    Money hungry; hoping the sun be

    Shining the path so may one see.

    Adulting is a drug, what harm can one be?

    This year’s resolution worked as the last did.

    So now I’ve hunted and harassed it.

    Seen my reflection and asked it

    Do you see what your stupid ass did?

    opportunities came and you passed it.

    Being young at heart

    While the adult world tears me apart

    God took my arm but shares me an art

    To articulate words into a Valid verse.

    Diplomatic scrutiny in mutiny and immunity.

    On this 9/11; Remember the Fallen

    Praise the brave

    Finally raise the flag of the free.

    For every police pistol’s unjust kill

    I’m back on one knee.

    America the failed experiment.

    With a depressing endearment

    The progressing spear hit.

    Today we see Lady Liberty’s worst.

    All rise and salute Liberty’s hearse.
