Unfettered Folly

Rocks roll
wills wail
sorry soul
gone to hell
didn’t hafta
coulda changed
you know I ax’ya
not to range
but blame don’t walk
and talk don’t shame
when aim won’t work
and chalk can’t chain
you walk your cell
a day at a time
knowing full well
you did the crime
of being born
of buying in
full face forlorn
fool human sin
bad design
not my fault
get on the wire
to the Keeper’s vault
it’s His work
it’s His line
He shouldn’t shirk
my misalign
an even deck
is all I ask
what the heck
I can do the hack
