I Still Don't Remember


I woke up this morning with an idea on my mind

And, though, like every morning

__I forgot thee idea

I still want to carry out the plan

Though, I may not know what the plan is

It's still worth getting done

I dream of a morning

__where I don't forget what it is

____that I wanted to do that day

But since I can't remember my dreams all the way

I don't know how that will play out

I might want to eat a Pop-Tart

And puke my guts out

__because of the bland crust

But, never the less

Something must be done

Thee exquisite taste

__of maple brown sugar

____will dance on my tongue

And I will fry in the hot seat

__when my life is done

Because that is what I imagine my Hell to be

The morning I piss myself off too much

__I will be sentenced to death

And the remainder of my life

__I will spend on death row

Fallowed by a quick fry

To electrocute my mind

Just to forever live

__in an acid flashback

____for all eternity

Just how I always wanted it to be

For me

And my careless mind

That wanders

And panders

And just about squanders

Pivoting side to side

Talking out of the corridors

There's nothing like a day spent counting thoughts

Wishing I could stop thinking them up

Why Eminem would put out a C.D.

__telling me to "relapse"

____in the title

______is far beyond my mind's capacity to know why

But I couldn't give a damn

__for crackers that don't want to swim

____in my soup

'Cause I don't put crackers in my soup anyway

I will lean closer to the pivoting of my heart

That rattles in my chest

At the near thought of mass murder

And all it's lovey dovey gruesomeness

A lovely mass shooting

A bomb going off somewhere

Something to make me glad to be me

And to be glad that God

__is getting my vengeance for me

Just how He promised

I don't know about you

But I sleep better

__after a bunch of people have died

But even by nightfall

I still fall asleep

__not remembering what it was

____I woke up to do

And then I wake up

And start all over again

Until the day I fry
