    The Men That Don't Fit In
    By Robert W. Service
    Source: The Spell of the Yukon, and Other Verses (1911)

    There's a race of men that don't fit in,
    A race that can't stay still;
    So they break the hearts of kith and kin,
    And they roam the world at will.

    They range the field and they rove the flood,
    And they climb the mountain's crest;
    Theirs is the curse of the gypsy blood,
    And they don't know how to rest.

    If they just went straight they might go far;
    They are strong and brave and true;
    But they're always tired of the things that are,
    And they want the strange and new.


    They say: "Could I find my proper groove,
    What a deep mark I would make!"
    So they chop and change, and each fresh move

    Is only a fresh mistake.

    And each forgets, as he strips and runs
    With a brilliant, fitful pace,
    It's the steady, quiet, plodding ones
    Who WIN in the lifelong race.


    And each forgets that his youth has fled,
    Forgets that his prime is past,
    'Till he stands one day, with a hope that's dead,
    In the glare of the truth at last.

    He has failed, he has failed; he has missed his chance;
    He has just done things by half.
    Life's been a jolly good joke on him,
    And now is the time to laugh.

    HA,HA! He is one of the Legion Lost;

    He was never meant to win;
    He's a rolling stone, and it's bred in the bone;
    He's a man who won't fit in.

    Who knew it was Poetry Slam Night in the Explorers Club =D *This time, on-hold with Airbnb. That should be my new YT channel: Art while on hold with Everybody Else..lol Also, you should know my pieces are written to be performed live & lose a little something in this translation. Okay,okay,okay- enough with the disclaimers.

    And now coming to the stage, someone you are beginning to get to know better, performing a piece called...

    A Dreamer with Some Cash
    By: Jamie Espy


    You talk & you talk
    until your face is blue;
    putting all that effort in,

    You bust your ass learning those new apps;
    Logging hours in on Chrome;

    You neglect your dear spouse in your passionate pursuit...

    " Hey ET! Phone Home!!!"

    But The years roll by and you've kept your pace;
    remaining loyal to your craft,
    Then suddenly, one day - it happens, Splash!
    Your Life Becomes A Raft;

    Floating Robustly Down The Nile of Happy,
    you start to earn some $erious dough,
    A bonadfide threat you can now become;
    all while smoking on some 'Dro

    Just where will you put your jedi time;
    Inquiring Minds are watching,they all want to know,
    Because NOTHING in the Multi-verse
    Could Be More Dangerous,
    Than A Dreamer
    With $ome Cash,
    Yo!

    Conjure with a Dude one night then CRUCIFY him the next.
