I am on a jury
Yes it’s all a big mystery
Cannot talk to me

I guess - I am thinking
That if I could have remembered
What the lie was or the one I used to cover up the other one
So I did not stop lying out of virtue

I was too stupid to lie

I wish I had sometimes
Trying to be good

I was still bad
Back to the courthouse
Applebee’s is the only place for miles around
Parking is a Bitch

Yes you gotta be be smart to lie.
Sometimes it takes several of them,
deployed in the right, timely sequence.
"Oh what a tangled web we weave"...
That old saying has a point..

On the other hand...
you could just go into politics,
get an office in Whopper City,
and lie your ass off.

I know
I am so happy to say that the young man that was living a lie with an older woman
Is quite happy tonight
Going to jail is not gonna happen for him
Yay I helped

I really need some pain relief
It’s 111 out and my body has had enough

I wish I could do some of the things many humans can do

You CAN do what many
humans can do, but that
might be a mixed blessing...

As always..

I'm sorry you're in pain. At least some cooler weather (should) be on the way pretty soon..
