Isosceles on guitar

It’s that day again
punch in the data
pray again and hope
for a better result.

To consult with the mystics
or to
read hieroglyphics?

Making turmeric tea,
is there something of
India in me?
or do I just like making
turmeric tea?

Seven in the forenoon
and it’s soon going to be eight,
afternoon it seems will have
to wait but not for long

out with the wine, the women and the song
and I want for the blessing, minus ten percent,
the church never meant me to have it all.
