One Doughnut at a Time Man

By Mikel K

We welcome you to our precision,
decisions will be made for you,

I play the same old broken record,
night after night, but it works for

I'm trying to not eat doughnuts
I'm trying to not drink Jack Daniels;
one doughnut at a time, man.

From the the day I first viewed Mikel's work I fell in love with his honest, open, everyday, relating ...style.
The truth is ...we all have the capability to write, and in such a way ...yet most of us want it to look good or sound good ...in fact it looks just that when it's from the heart real.

You inspire me most days Mikel K
I'm only one person in the drop of the ocean.
Imagine how many other people ( shared or unshared) feel the same.

Keep on keeping on, uplifting, enlightening .....keep on .

Great love and respect AD
