Love Is Not All
Love is not all; It is not booze or pain
Nor a Toshiba 27" television box
For which to tape and tape again
When torn down by the fox
At the campground where you hide
Because your old man kicked you out
Of the trailer where you used to reside.
Love cannot stifle the doubt
When the man that you loved swore
That you were the only one in his life
And then leaves you for some younger whore
Even when you got out the kitchen knife.
Yet many women are making friends with chocolate
In the name of love when love goes wrong
Love makes you take your wedding ring and hock it;
Then spend the money on a brand new thong.
It may well be that at happy hour,
Cursing about how I've lost my smokes
(Or having one too many whiskey sours)
I may sell your love for a couple of tokes
Or trade the memory of your kiss for jello shots
It could very well be; Why the hell not?
