wore off the shock
 
i remember when
columbine happened
and i was stunned
 
and every school
shooting after it
sort of wore off
the shock
 
the latest one
feels different
 
like the dumbass
picked the wrong
school or the wrong
time to want to be
infamous
 
of course, i'm sure
the NRA will have
a fortune or two to
spend to shut these
kids up for good
 
i've never lived in
a time where money
didn't rule everything
considered a grown man
 
another afternoon
with the old ladies
 
sadly, the pain is
much closer to the
same than i am
willing to admit
 
my mother warned
me growing up
would often
fucking suck
 
she never told me
it would still long
after you were
considered a
grown man
------------------------------------------------------------------
with a touch of blonde
 
i've always
had a weakness
for fine ass black
women with a
touch of blonde
in their hair
 
too bad it seems
like one that finds
poets with crazy
goatees hot as hell
simply doesn't exist
------------------------------------------------------------------
after the weekend
 
give me a bottle
of liquor and a
crazy woman
and i'll talk to
you after the
weekend
 
but it's only
tuesday
 
my point
exactly
------------------------------------------------------------------
sweet memories
 
i can remember
pictures of you
from my childhood
 
i was never blessed
with the ability to
have sweet memories
 
it's usually nothing
but fucking pain on
top of more years of
fucking pain
 
yet another reminder
i should have never
stopped doing drugs
----------------------------------------------------------------------
the powers that be
 
yet another
school shooting
 
18th this year
and it's only
february
 
and the powers
that be won't do
anything to stop
it
 
they know their
money flow stops
if they say the
wrong thing
 
and people dare
to wonder why
i'm happy i don't
vote and never
had any kids
