Advice by Gary R. Ferris
Sometimes I get so tired,

Of hearing this worlds advice;

I’m always doing something wrong,

I should learn to think twice.
I should think as they do,

And forget what I believe;

For they’re so good and happy,

And all I do is grieve,
I shouldn’t feel so guilty,

Whenever I do wrong;

For guilt is a sign of weakness,

And shows that I’m not strong.
If your marriage is in trouble,

Then divorce her tonight;

Come and sleep in my bed,

And it will be alright.

For God never intended,

For us to keep His word;

And if we are unhappy,

Than that is for the birds.
Forget what you have learned,

While you were growing up;

Don’t worry, just be happy,

And fill up your cup.
But this kind of advise,

Just doesn’t seem to fit;

I do what is right,

And I’m never going to quit.
So go ahead and laugh,

I don’t care, I have no class;

This world can take its advice,

And stick it up its ass.
