Never Want Anything Very Hard ......


              There's always something to do if you don't have to consider work or consider the cost. It's no real fun but the rich don't know that. They never had any. They never want anything very hard except maybe somebody else's wife and that's a pretty pale desire compared with the way a plumber's wife wants new curtains for the living room.

Here Lies the Fool .......

                              Don't put no headstone on my grave
                              All my life i've been a slave
                              And i don't  want the world to know
                              Here lies the fool that loved you so

He Learned Some Things ............


                  He learned some things about murder early on. He learned that men killed with less provocation than women. Men killed because they were drunk, stoned, and pissed off. Men killed for money .................
