drug of choice

If things are bad
or You’re feelin’ sad
Put on the TV.
Put on the TV

You could try drugs
or maybe hugs
got none of these?
try TV

Home or love sick
Solve it with a click
it works for me
Temporarily

I can always depend
on finding old friends
Just waiting for me
now in HD

When I need to escape
I can run a tape
or a DVD
on my TV

Smell the Roses

Get it right.
Measure up.
Don’t be uptight.
You’re good enough.

Be unique.
Be the first.
Be relatable.
Be down-to-earth.

Fit right in.
Stand out in a crowd.
Always be humble.
Always be proud.

Take a chance.
Step up to the plate.
Don’t be rigid.
Don’t be late.

Believe in miracles.
Stick to the facts.
Try your best.
Just relax.

What’s your hurry?
Get it in gear.
Look where you leap.
Have no fear.

Don’t wear out your welcome.
Give till it hurts.
Don’t rush away.
Put your mask on first.

Roll with the punches.
Be prepared.
Follow your hunches.
Don’t be scared.

The early bird
never doses.
Does he take time
to smell the roses?
