I drudged up a smile for those warped and
stuck up sycophants dressed
in polyester and argyle nooses.
I sit silently already knowing the outcome.
Those fakes have never known what it feels
like to live day to day
being a mess.
Life isn’t to be lead with floaties,
you have to drown a few hundred times
to learn how to truly live.
Fuck you, I won’t do what you tell me.
