I ain’t never been nowhere

I didn’t go to get there

I ain’t never done a thing

I didn’t do


I ain’t never spoke a word

I didn’t think of

And hardly thought a word

I didn’t say


I ain’t never owned a thing

I didn’t have

I ain’t never prayed a prayer

I didn’t pray


I ain’t never finished a thing

I didn’t start

I ain’t never known a thing

I never knew


And I ain’t never loved no one

Like I love you


By Gene

I am a lover, a fighter, and a midnight writer. I love football, hamburgers, and philosophical inquiries. I love Jesus more than any of that. I love my wife, my daughters, my grandson, and my English Setters, Huck and Finn. I also love Huck Finn...and other seminal characters in American literature. Like Gus McCrae. I love the English language. I love to dive into the wonders of its depth and splash around in the shallow end where colloquialisms and slang rule and reign.
