Way back when I was just a little bitty boy living in a box under the stairs in the corner of the basement of the house half a block down the street from Jerry's Bait Shop.

You know the place.

Well anyway, back then, life was going swell and everything was just peachy.

Except, of course, for the undeniable fact that every single morning
My mother would make me a big bowl of sauerkraut for breakfast




It was driving me crazy

I said to my mom, I said "Hey, mom, what's with all the sauerkraut?"
And my dear, sweet mother...
She just looked at my like a cow looks at an oncoming train
And she leaned right down next to me
And she said "IT'S GOOD FOR YOU"
And then she tied me to the wall and stuck a funnel in my mouth and force fed me nothing but sauerkraut until I was twenty six and a half years old.

That's when I swore that someday...

Someday, I'd get outta that basement and travel to a magical, far away place...

Where the sun is always shining and the air smells like warm Root Beer and the towels are oh so fluffy!
Where the shriners and the lepers play their ukuleles all day long and anyone on the street will glady shave your back for a nickel...

Well, let me tell you, people, it wasn't long at all before my dream came true.
Because the very next day, a local radio station had this contest to see who could correctly guess the number of molecules in Leonard Nimoy's butt
I was off by three, but I still won the grand prize!
That's right, a first class one-way ticket to Albuquerque.

You know, I'd never been on a real airplane before, but I gotta tell ya, it was really great.

Except that I had to sit between two large Albanian women with excruciatingly severe body odor and the little kid in back of me kept throwin' up the whole time and he flight attendants ran out of Dr. Pepper and salted peanuts and the in-flight movie was Bio-Dome with Pauly Shore and, oh yeah, three of the airplane engines burned out.

And we went into a tailspin and crashed into a hillside and the plane exploded in a giant fireball and everybody diiiied!

Except for me
You know whyyyyy?

'Cause I had my tray table up
And my seat back in the full upright position
Had my tray table up
And my seat back in the full upright position
Had my tray table up
And my seat back in the full upright position

So I crawled from the twisted, burnin' wreckage.

I crawled on my hands and knees for three full days.

Draggin' along my big leather suitcase and my garment bag and my tenor saxophone and my twelve-pound bowling ball and my lucky, lucky autographed glow-in-the-dark snorkel.

But finally I arrived at the world famous Albuquerque Holiday Inn!

Where the towels are oh so fluffy and you can eat your soup right out of the ashtrays if you wanna!

It's OK, they're clean

Well, I checked into my room and I turned down the A/C and I turned on the SpectraVision and I'm just about to eat that little chocolate mint on my pillow that I love so very, very much when suddenly, there's a knock on the door....

Well now, who could that be?

I say "Who is it?"
No answer
"Who is it?"
There's no answer
They're not sayin' anything!

So, finally I go over and I open the door and just as I suspected...

It's some big fat hermaphrodite with a Flock-Of-Seagulls haircut and only one nostril..

Oh man, I hate it when I'm right...

So anyway, he bursts into my room and he grabs my lucky snorkel and I'm like "Hey, you can't have that! That snorkel's been just like a snorkel to me"
And he's like "Tough"
And I'm like "Give it"
And he's like "Make me"
And I'm like "'K."

So, I grabbed his leg and he grabbed my esophagus and I bit off his ear and he chewed off my eyebrows and I took out his appendix and he gave me a colonic irrigation!

Yes indeed, you better believe it!

And somehow in the middle of it all, the phone got knocked off the hook...and twenty seconds later, I heard a familiar voice..

And you know what it said?

I'll tell you what it said

It said
"If you'd like to make a call, please hang up and try again"
"If you need help, hang up and then dial your operator"

Well, to cut a long story short, he got away with my snorkel, but I made a a solemn vow right then and there that I would not rest....I would not sleep for an instant until the one-nostrilled man was brought to justice...

But first, I decided to buy some donuts

So I got in my car and I drove over to the donut shop and I walked on up to the guy behind the counter and he says "Yeah, what do ya want?"
I said "You got any glazed donuts?"
He said "No, we're outta glazed donuts"
I said "Well, you got any jelly donuts?"
He said "No, we're outta jelly donuts"
I said "You got any Bavarian cream-filled donuts?"
He said "No, we're outta Bavarian cream-filled donuts"
I said "You got any cinnamon rolls?"
He said "No, we're outta cinnamon rolls"
I said "You got any apple fritters?"
He said "No, we're outta apple fritters"
I said "You got any bear claws?"
He said "Wait a minute, I'll go check"
"No, we're outta bear claws"
I said "Well, in that case - in that case, what do you have?"
He says "All I got right now is this box of one dozen starving, crazed weasels"
I said "OK, I'll take that"

So he hands me the box and I open up the lid and the weasels jump out and they immediately latch onto my face and start bitin' me all over...

Oh man, they were just going nuts...
They were tearin' me apart...

You know, I think it was just about that time that a little ditty started goin' through my head....

I believe it went a little something like this . . .

Get 'em off me
Get 'em off me
No, get 'em off, get 'em off
Oh, oh God, oh God
Oh, get 'em off me
Oh, oh God

I ran out into the street with these flesh-eating weasels all over my face, wavin' my arms all around and just runnin', runnin', runnin' like a constipated weiner dog!

And as luck would have it, that's exactly when I ran into the girl of my dreams...

Her name was Zelda.

She was a calligraphy enthusiast with a slight overbite and hair the color of strained peaches..

I'll never forget the first thing she said to me....

She said...

"Hey, you've got weasels on your face"

That's when I knew it was true love! We were inseparable after that! Aw, we ate together, we bathed together, we even shared the same piece of mint-flavored dental floss.
The world was our burrito.

So we got married and we bought us a house and had two beautiful children! Nathaniel and Superfly!
Oh, we were so very very very happy, aw yeah.

But then one fateful night, Zelda said to me "Sweetie pumpkin? Do you wanna join the Columbia Record Club?"



I said "Woah, hold on now, baby. I'm just not ready for that kinda commitment!"

So, we broke up and I never saw her again, but that's just the way things go...

In Albuquerque

Anyway, things really started lookin' up for me because about a week later, I finally achieved my lifelong dream.

That's right, I got me a part-time job at The Sizzler!

I even made employee of the month after I put that grease fire out with my face! Aw yeah, everybody was pretty jealous of me after that. I was gettin' a lot of attitude!

OK, like one time, I was out in the parking lot, trying to remove my excess earwax with a golf pencil...When I see this guy Marty tryin' to carry a big ol' sofa up the stairs all by himself

So I say to him, I say "Hey, you want me to help you with that?"

And Marty, he just rolls his eyes and goes
"No, I want you to cut off my arms and legs with a chainsaw"

So I did.

And then he gets all indignant on me!
He's like "Hey man, I was just being sarcastic"
Well, that's just great.
How was I supposed to know that?
I'm not a mind reader for cryin' out loud!
Besides, now he's got a really cute nickname...
So what's he complaining about?

Say, that reminds me of another amusing anecdote. This guy comes up to me on the street and says he hasn't had a bite in three days. Well, I knew what he meant, but just to be funny, I took a big bite out of his jugular vein!

And he's yellin' and screamin' and bleeding all over and I'm like "Hey, come on, don't you get it?"
But he just keeps rolling around on the sidewalk, bleeding, and screaming.

You know, just completely missing the irony of the whole situation...
Man, some people just can't take a joke, you know?

Anyway, um, um, where was I?
Kinda lost my train of thought

Uh, well, uh, OK
Anyway, I know it's kinda been a roundabout way of saying it, but I guess the whole point I'm trying to make here is....

I hate sauerkraut.

That's all I'm really tryin' to say. And, by the way, if one day you happen to wake up and find yourself in an existential quandary full of loathing and self-doubt and wracked with the pain and isolation of your pitiful meaningless existence....

At least you can take a small bit of comfort in knowing that somewhere out there in this crazy mixed-up universe of ours...there's still a little place called...

You were supposed to hear me whisper.
You were supposed to listen.
This why I never talk,
I was born to bear the weight of your heart and mine.

So I take it, like a silent crutch.
I hear your whisper.
I wait and I listen.
I don’t mind letting you talk.

If liking you was a mistake,

I would never be perfect.

If I had to sacrifice everything for you,

Everything would be gone in an instant.

If exercise was my obstacle from you,

I’d run a thousand miles.

If taking my life is what I had to do to have a moment with you,

Give me a knife and I’ll be Juliet.

If wishing everyday would get me you,

I’d wish every breathing moment.

If finding a genie meant being with you,

I’d search every lamp.

If finding a pot of gold meant you’ll stay with me,

I’d go under every rainbow to find a leprechaun.

If I’d have to sacrifice all my privilege for you,

If love comes in colors,

I choose blue,

If love comes in flowers,

I’ll choose rose,

If love comes in songs,

I’ll think of choosing Blues,

But if love should come in human beings,

I’ll definitely not think twice before

I’ll choice you!

Because.....You are my choice

I close my eyes
Holding tightly
Nothing feels right
I lost my grip

I think I'm drowning
In this sorrow
I keep on fighting
It's too much to take in

In this darkness
Feel it crushing me
Pulling me further
Away from you

This agony
I suffer silently

It's so lonely
With this agony

As time goes on
The lights disapear
Slowly slipping
Goodbye memories

In this darkness
Feel it crushing me
Pulling me further
Away from you

This agony
I suffer silently

It's so lonely
With this agony

Just let go of me

This agony
I suffer silently

It's so lonely
Please let go of me

Can't hold my breath
Gotta get out of here
No more running
Gotta face my fears

With this agony
Without you here.

You know, the funny thing is I have a whole folder of Poetry. That I wrote years ago as a teenager, so I might share one of those. Problem is deciding.


Look at the ants below

Look at the ants above

We all scurry around like drones

In a world full of homophones

We rule the world we live in

By forcing our ways upon the earth

In life of a planet

The existence of species is only an instant

So why do humans fight to rule

This planet that miraculously spawned life

To millions of species

Which humans parasite off

In order to survive

Kiss me now
Give me the kiss of death
for you will never know how you hurt me
your kiss is like poison that there is no cure,
I step back but you pull me in with your bitter embrace
I know its wrong but you make it right
kiss me now
give me the kiss of death
