All About Eve

All About Eve

All about Eve?

What about me?

In a superficial society.

Trendy, Fendi,

Keeping up with Beyonce

Spending at your local foods

People are so freakin’ rude

Pushing shop carts into butts

Let their kids do what they want.

Monopolize the conversation

It’s better than a sex sensation

Demean others, even your friends

The main thing is to “win, win, win.”

Do it daily, do it loud

Do it often so you feel proud

Raise your kid the same way

She’s a princess every day

Problems in the world we see

Ignorance, sickness, poverty

Change would be nice, if only …

Yet we still chant, “Me! Me! Me!”

And, you know, it’s nothing new,

Eve was all about “me” too.

Back then it was forbidden fruit,

Now it’s Botox to stay cute.

Charlton Heston, was once the rage, uh-huh

No one cares what Moses claimed; uh-huh

And the ME goes on. And the ME goes on.

On.

On.

On.

On.

Rudolph the Raw Food Reindeer

Here’s a little parody I wrote back in 2004 when I was following the raw food diet, ENJOY!

Rudolph the Raw Food Reindeer

You know Atkins and South Beach and Vegan and Phen-Phen
Bally’s, Ephedra and Yoga and Gold’s Gym

But do you recall?
The most healthiest lifestyle of all?

Rudolph the raw food reindeer
Never ever cooked his food
And if you ever saw him
You would even say “He glows.”

All of the SAD eating reindeer
Used to laugh and be skeptics
They never saw Raw Rudolph
Eat at any fast food place

Then one sunny Christmas day
Mother Nature came to say,
“Rudolph with your food so ripe,
Won’t you sow my garden tonite?!”

Then how the reindeer loved him
As they shouted out with glee,
“You were right all along Raw Rudolph,
This lifestyle really is for me!”
