Why does it have to be this way?
I fought for something different.
and I now I realized what it meant,
or how I spent
all my life moving and twisting
dodging bullets and hauling carcass
falling off trees and scarping knees
so that I could send my kids to college
What the fuck?
Is that all it comes down to
because if so
I wouldn’t mind a bullet in my head
for the rest of my life.
What ever happened to chivalry?
or did that die when I was born
Can’t you see it’s contagious
You can catch it, and fall so far in
that you don’t know ass from elbow
I’m lost and I don’t know what the fuck to use
as a compass
and I’m too lazy to point north
But tomorrow I will wake up
brush my teeth
bleed out my gums
and try again.
