Poetry by Jim Nasium

They say one picture is worth 1000 words, I think that's the main reason I like to show some of my art with a poem.
I hope you enjoy this new poem I call

There's Just Not Much That's New

I been around a long long time
been there done that before
but every day there's something new
that makes me want more and more

tempted by worldly desire
living life in the fast lane
trying to keep up with the jones
could drive a guy insane

there's never time to relax
it's all work no time for play
the early bird gets the worm
or so that's what they say

every time you get one thing
some thing new comes along
you find your self all caught up
a victim to the siren song

the grass always seems greener
on the other side of the fence
all this has ever done for you
is left you very tense

the time has come to face the truth
there's just not much that's new
out there that's really worth
the shit that ya gott'a go through

I was going to end the poem right here and now...
but my muse had other plans...

Please take time to sign my guest book and visit my pricelist page

so if you want to own one
you got to work all day
and before you ever see it
your bills suck up the pay

at least you have a credit card
so you can buy what you want to
after all each and every day
there's always something new

just when you get one thing
something new comes along
you really gott'a have it
you fall victim to a siren song

you see the man down the street
he's got one of them too
so you need to go right out
and get yourself something new

it's a crazy cycle
every day there's something new
it never seems to end at all
I don't know what to do

there's one thing that I know for sure
deep in side'a my heart
there's just not much that's new
worth tearing yourself apart
