The Bard's Contrarian Bar: It Ain't Necessarily So

Updated: Sep 29, 2021

Signs of My Times

Sign on my office door

if I ever get an office

"No Lying, Cheating, or Price Gouging

Politicians of any ilk

need not apply

Gratuities Graciously Accepted"

Sign On My Condo Door

if I ever get up the nerve

“Contrarians Welcome

all others be wary”

The Bard's Contrarian Bar

Welcome to the Bard's Contrarian Bar

where things are nearly never

what you think they are

Take the seven deadly sins

you hear so much about

Not nearly as deadly

as folks make them out

It seems to me

what they've come to be

are the cornerstones

of our society

to wit: The Magnificent Seven

Gluttony, Greed, Lust, Pride, Envy, Sloth, and Wrath

Gluttony—less for you, more for me

Greed—give me more than I could ever need

Lust—gotta get me some (…) or bust

Pride—I’m way too big to step aside

Envy—reserved for those with more than me

Sloth—doing a Zoom chat in my underwear

Wrath—piss me off and I will end you
