Half Ass

Mema used to say

Long ago

“Don’t do anything half-ass”

She told me to feel with both hands

Or keep them to myself

To make enough to go around and then some

Always have an open invitation

Tacked upon my heart and my home

Keep my mouth shut

Unless I was sure it was worth the trouble

There was no reason to be acting ugly

When you could walk away

I swear the things she taught me

Are carved deep inside me

And I find myself repeating

The same words she did-

Don’t go acting ugly

Feel with both hands

Come on and sit down beside me

Don’t do anything half ass

Get up and get going

Shake your booty and dance

Put on something pretty

Cause you just never know

Who you might run into

But most of all

Don’t ever give up

On those you love

Give as many chances as it takes

And just remember

How you were raised

And don’t be doing anything

Half assed
