The Magic 8 Ball

Martin Luther had a dream
Geronimo had visions
People use all sorts of ways
To come to their decisions

Tea leaf readers in a cup
A Psychic with some cards
Looking at a twirling disc
And dancing in the yard

Decision making’s easy
If you have the correct tool
You may get the right answer
Or you may end up a fool

Shaman in a sweat lodge
Chew peyote just to see
What the others can not visualize
But what comes easy to folks like me

Some roll dice, and others bones
To get the answer that they need
Others ask the dead to help
To get their answer freed

I myself use none of these
None of these at all
I sit down with a bourbon
And my old Magic Black 8-ball

I switched the little answer ball
It has answers….only two
One is just the one word “dude”
And “what would Keith Richards do?”

“Dude” is universal
It has helped me win not lose
Because it’s meaning changes
Depending on the “u”‘s

Say it with one U…dude
it means don’t even think it
But add eight more and make it duuuuuuuuude
And there’s no question you should drink it

The other answer’s simple
What would good old Keefy do?
If it didn’t kill old Keefy
It won’t kill me and you

So, use your magic mushrooms
Dance with spirits in the hall
But I’ll make my decisions
With my plastic, black eight ball
