The Bards Contrarian Bar

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”

Contrarians’ Creed

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
