I got a ticket to ride.
One way trip. But I lied.
Second trip. And I tried.
To be good. But still died.
This one is not round trip.
Not giving anyone any lip.
Just sit back and let it rip.
Breathe deep. Take a sip.
Each trip is short.
I’m happy to report.
This time there will be no retort.
No pop of crack. No cocaine snort.
Carpe Diem. Every damn day!
I learned my lesson. This I say,
Nothing. Yes nothing. Stands in my way,
I spread peace and love so that I may,
Only leave you with a smile.
For I will only stay a short while.
And if your number I dial,
Know that together we walk the mile.
