J.A. Chesney

Right! - by J.A. Chesney

You’re always right,

And whether you’re right

or exactly right,

You’re still right.

But sometimes you’re just right,

But right just the same,

And sometimes you’re quite right,

But never almost right,

And NEVER like me,

Because you’re right,

And when you’re right,

you’re right.

And you,

You’re always right.


1996- by J.A. Chesney

I don’t want to see what will be,

Don’t want to know what lies ahead

One more year, will it ever get better?

I don’t think it will

New years kisses,

Lots of beer and champagne,

But not one kiss,

And not a drop for me

I don’t want to do it all over again,

One more year,

I’m tired, I’m alone,

Tears drying in my eyes,

Happy new year


  1. Wow. I was a lousy poet. I say was because I haven't written a poem in years.

    Now I remember why.

  2. I thought "Right!" was actually pretty good, although, I admit that I don't read much poetry so I wouldn't consider myself a great judge of what is "good" or "bad".

  3. Insight... note to self.

    Make sure J.A. Chesney gets New Years Eve off.

    Thanks for popping that up there Ademar, I have not heard of JAC's poetry.
