What I Like

I like beer, but it’s no good for me

According to my councillors

But I enjoy its pure taste

And what does it matter

If I wanna waste my life away drinking it?

 

I like red wine, but it’s no good for me

According to those who have to put up with

The effect it has on me,

And what does it matter

That it’s hastening my demise?

 

I like cigarettes, but they’re no good for me

And they taste and smell disgusting

According to those who can smell my breath

But they sate my addiction

And fill a void in my empty life

And what does it matter

If they are slowly killing me?

 

I like women, but they’re no good for me

According to my friends

As they’re all mad or aspirational or both

And they destroy me emotionally

Every time they break my heart

And what does it matter

If they don’t even look at me anymore

And that my loneliness is killing me?
