Godless Dollars For Buskers

There’s a busker on the corner With a beat-up old guitar And he’s singing ‘bout some wise men Who were following a star And the night is getting chilly And he’s missed a meal or two Could be sadness; could be frostbite But he’s looking rather blue Stop and listen to his music, And to …

A Squidmas Carol

Now… I am not, technically, a fan of Squidmas; I have always preferred the more inclusive Cephalopodmas, myself. But some shiftless bum who goes by the name “shiftlessbum” asked nicely, on Pharyngula, if I could “pen a Squidmas carol”. So here is the first. First thing–it is not a poem, it is a song; if …
