The book is due out
in a month
but they say
the world will end
tomorrow.
Those fucking Mayans
have everyone
running scared.
Their greatest contribution to humanity
was
fear.
You've got to give it to them
as they
were really
rather small.
The book is due out
in a month
and a dancing whore clown
is number one
in the charts.
She dresses
in red meat
and shows her pussy
to the world.
She's a foul-mouthed
new-world
icon
and 6 year old children
flock to her like Mecca.
I have seen it all before,
I have witnessed the production line.
And I can tell you,
the product has become
increasingly inferior.
The book is due out
in a month
and Stand By Me
is showing on TV.
They don't make films like that anymore,
that depiction
of growth
through fear
and bonding and adventure.
Those boys
became men
that weekend.
Woody's had four movies
and is not even close.
The book is due out
in a month
and after that there is no hiding.
If
there is something wrong with me,
everyone will soon know.
But if they drop their coins
to hate me
I will pick them up
and take the crap
from a smoky bar
in
Havana.
