Ode To Day 90 – Who’s Leaning On Me?

MAD Magazine Issue 90What does it mean to really be quit?
A pledge? A choice? Or just giving some lip?
By “lip” I mean just talking the talk.
Saying your quit but not walking the walk.
Anyone can say it, right from the start,
But your actions speak louder, they come from the heart!
Who have you helped stay quit today?
Who have you stood with, Have you earned your pay?
To stay tough and quit, you must have a bond,
A brother to lean on, like my man, Evil-Won.
But ask yourself this, “who’s leaning on me?”
Who is the one that you help to keep free?
If you’re drawing a blank you’re in the wrong place.
This quit ain’t a sprint, it’s a marathon race.
To do it alone is is to do it all wrong,
Too many failures have done sung that song!
My brothers support me throughout this long run.
That’s why tomorrow I’m posting up day NINETY-ONE.
