Later Has Passed, Never Just Started

Someone said:
“God died in the ‘80s.”
Not bad for a 5-year-old,
Could be something to that.

Christmas meant a bottle
Of tequila for Uncle Louie,
Now spraying Rustoleum 
On the pearly gates.

Mind gone rancid:
Mister, you better hit 
Your knees & start 
Some serious dreaming.

A scarred face
Sleep-creased all to hell
Reminds me: 
When do we wake up?

Only wondering – 
But wipe that drool
Off your chin
In case it’s soon.
