22 January 2015


why do I struggle to stay awake
awake for many hours at a time
time enough for me to lose my mind
mind you though you're past your prime

prime the pump to the mercury well
well, well, I'll get you and your dog too
too much for your brain
brain on the bottom of my shoe

shoo the flies away
away from my head
head to the cemetery
cemetery is what I said

said you'll never forget the pain and aches
aches that make you ask yourself why
