I didn’t make all this mess
but, I was ‘born into this’
(‘Dinosauria, We’ thanks, Bukowski)
so, I have to deal with something
I didn’t create
I know you didn’t do it
but it would be sure nice to blame someone
other than me
even though it never helps
and keeps me acting like a victim
did you know that
no one gave me life instructions?
How about you?
did you get yours?
Oh, yeah, everywhere you look they are trying to sell you something
pills, bad food, weight loss food, vitamin pills and secret potions
all concoctions for a price.
they tell you how to dress, what car to drive, what job you should have
and on and on and on.
and, now, they are telling us what we can say or not,
even how and what to think.
better be very careful in the future who you vote for.
everyone does pretty much what they want
here on earth running here and running there
in a circle spinning their wheels
until they run into a brick wall
We are stuck on this planet for a while
one day we will wake up and look into the mirror
and ask ourselves how we got so old so fast
i sure hope we don’t die some miserable death
let’s all go painlessly in our sleep
(if we are very very lucky)
most will die of cancer or something else they will cut out
or give you a pill that does one thing but causes twenty other symptoms
but, until then, hand me another slice of pepperoni pizza and pitcher of beer.
because tomorrow we die.
boo, boo, boo.
a very personal but lonely experience we all must go through sooner or later.
