Sperm Ain't No Joke

30. Jan. 1998

I am writing a poem
In Front of Me
And the
Desk is getting closer
And closer to the
Of minute factions
And fractures
And People
Telling us all
What it is
We are up to
In the end
Still the end
And that
No hip-hop junk,
By the way
We have all
Been writing it seems like
We ain’t ever
Going to finish
That intention
That it
Was that we
Were going to


Let’s face it
That intention
Was the sperm
After the egg
And as odds
Have it we
Were the
Lucky ones who
After prolonged exposure
Get to die anyway.

Leave A Stone

2. Jan. 1998

The grass
is there
and I
am aware
of the
pains Young
is the
who forgets
Age is
that I
am not
here anymore
Gone with
the leaves
as they
green, grow,
fold and
the way
to my
heart and
leave a
stone to

A funeral for a Jewish person where the grass is just as important as the life of observer and the end of days. Leaving a stone on the grave for respect.

Justice Is A Big Series of Drunks

1. Jan. 1998

Just when the booze wore off
Another has begun, anew
And the crew has swabbed the
Deck only to have it roosted all over
Once more
And the city lights die down
And dusk creeps into
This old poem written again
It will blow away again,

Love found soft shoulders
To rest its head, good bye,
To die again in the pillow,
To die again by ones side,
This is all
That had to be say
And now no more, et al.
To be in the hands of justice
Drunk more and more, amore,
That this old poem
In her hand
It will blow away again;

She told me forever, forever
Forgotten now among the blooms
Of flowers that are picked
And they only wither,
What good is love’s
Burst and pleasure
To leisure itself to sleep
And this old poem that is my Friend
It will walk away again
To keep,

Justice has been done.

A slow song in the head of a drunken man that has no music only the words. A distant reflection on the love stuff. Another rhythm that calls again and again. Circa: 1998. We are not really sure when it was written.

By Alex Nuttall - Bio

I am finding it difficult
Wheezing and breathing in the wind,
Of the morning,
Nostrils conquered with dust
And a fever grows ever
Gruesome pains that deliver the Me
Into the hands of liberty-gone-bad.

The handsome soul
Now sounds its way into the
River and bends its ways to and from and to,
For to,
Revolutionary instructions will be given
Later on, my brother…
Later on.

Short ways to meaninglessnessess
And other messes
Of mans occupation in the

This is the teaching of the birds that are like owls screeching
And supine around;
The corroborator eats its way through the
And the General Lee is still on his pedestal.

In the Babooniverse this is what makes
Us all one,
¿Comprende, No?

Oui Oui!
No, Poo Poo.

BABOONIVERSE - Not to sure about the date. Last copyright was 1998. Breathing is just part of life, but in stressful situations it becomes the measure between life and death. Babooniverse represents the monkey man glorified as he thinks of himself in revolutionary terms


1. Jan. 1998

When I wrote before
I could open the door
And say hello to my mind
Being very unkind
It did what it did and I had to let go
Of all that I thought was right
Dynamite in the light the horizon is
Look at the people all looking at me like
Drive-by killings that secede
Some governments,
All for the sake of Humanis
Homo Homo Sapiens Erectus;

And the Blue jays still taunt me.

So Protests the Protestant

01 Jan. 1998

In School,
High School,
I Decided
To Be A Poet;

So I did not pretend to be anything else,
My life grows and I get older now,
I am still playing the game,
I can’t spell,
I can’t rhyme,
And I can’t pay all of my bills…

Oh, look at me!
The poet who is;

One small step for me 
Years of cleanup 
Next Generation
Punks and pundits;

Sometimes the ground is the same,
I am dealing with some people who are a lot
Smarter than me –
A whole lot smarter;

But this is my life
When I die
They will all be gone.

As always the poet Alex Nuttall is using hindsight to clarify his stretch in the run of life. This poem breaths with the panting runners aches and pains. The run is not over so when this was written in 1998 it was just another move to push the runner on. Experts call this the internal locus  that motivates.

The title is about being raised Southern Conservative Baptist. Baptists are from the Protestant side of Christianity. By this time Alex was calling himself Buddhist but he started to embrace his rejected upbringings as well.

We are not quite sure when in 1998 this was written so chronologically it goes on January 1st, 1998. Just for fun.
