              A Bowl of Cheers?
Critics say, “Jack you are a hard and unforgiving man!”
You know what…they are right! I am, who I am and
I’ll never be anyone but me.
I apologize not, for I say what I think and I think before
I say, and with that said, my critics can all bite their hand.
The truth can not be sugarlaced or politically correct.
The truth is pure, and only hurts the ones it should and
the innocent go free, and that’s as it should be!
Deceit and lies are cheap, but their consequences can
 be deadly; while the truth sometimes can be very expensive,
but in the end,  truth is without sin!
So I will continue to tell it like it is, without sugar or cream,
for Life is not a bowl of cherries full of sweet dreams!
Jackie R. Kays
