It's Like The Virus Is Here To Stay


Runnin' around like a martyr

__with confusion in my head

But survived

I don't know

Maybe no one was trying to kill me yet

Probably had nothing to die for, I guess

The news that spins around in my head

Happens to be from a Tv. screen

Where I get a daily dose of the world's drama

And as I lick the pancake batter

I beat myself up

__in the head

And walk around half dead to the world

Feeding myself

And nobody else

Because I live alone

Because I was sentenced to Hell

But I don't mind it most of the time

I actually like it here

Even though the weather, here, is SO fair

__that it makes me sick!

Why does the sun gotta shine so much?

Life without people eats me up inside

There's just no way outta this madness

It's insane the way I kick every one

__out of my life

They still dare to stick around

I don't know what for

I've just about had it up to here

__with being forced to wait to get things done

I've no patience for any one

Now they wanna throw normality away

And trap us in our homes

And kill us if we leave too much

"Covid 19"

It is not fun

They call this "the new normal"

Because things will never be the same again

Well, all this madness freaks me out

The world, dying

The president, lying

How can the world survive such stupidity?


This is life

As fucked up as it is

Nobody seems to give a fuck

And we're all out here in danger

Afraid for our lives

My goals are met

But I'm still alive

So what's next?

Just gonna keep goin'

Never gonna stop

Why should I?

How could I?

I got so much to say

All the time

The world won't let me quit now

I'm only 42

Next month I'll have a decade clean

It still amazes me

__that I'm thee only dinosaur

____that's never worked for a living

And I thought "nobody was terminally unique"?


In the grip of recovery

__and I still have to be called "special"

Like I'm a fuckin' retard


I don't care

I just wish I could stop getting ripped off

'Cause it's wasting my money

__not being able to not get my money back

Just because of the shutdown

But that's the least of the world's problems

Because I don't exist to them

Well, fuck them then

Thank you. I waited a long time between the last book and this one. Took a while to do thee editing, 'cause of Father's Day off and all. So busy then. I had a lot backed up in me. I still do.
