Rotten artichoke

They say to be happy,
all one need do is smile.
If it were so simple,
it's taking me a while.

Better to choke in smoke,
my rotten artichoke
They don't get it,
one single bit.
How long since your heart broke?

Rotten artichoke

They say to be happy,

all one need do is smile.

If it were so simple,

it's taking me a while.


Onion makes one cry

but only with layers torn.

Would one really be kind,

if not so frail and worn?


Better to choke in smoke,

my rotten artichoke

They don't get it,

one single bit.

How long since your heart broke?
