SCHMAIKU #8: PENNIES

I can't resist orphaned coins looking up at me
longing for a home; It pays to pick up pennies
because money doesn't grow on trees
money grows on the ground  ##

SCHMAIKU #9: LOVED ONES

You spend your whole life
trying to please them
But those you love the best
piss on you the most  ##

SCHMAIKU #10: SOUTHERN BAPTIST'S CREDO

You can pick my pocket, screw me, rob me, lie to me,
send my son off to war to get killed or lose a limb.
You can take me and my country broke
but you're OK as long as you say you're for Jesus.  ##
