French Fries Don't Laugh With Me Enough

-

Drops of powdered forgetfulness

Unclog my forgiveness

How unbetrayed are my thoughts of you?

Let me banish my heart

From your unmemorable wounds, that

__scatter like mice to a cheesebread

I wanted you to know how much of a

__monster you have become in the

____mists of pleasure

Taste me

Tease me

Show me you don't care

Show up and stop down sometime

My head is like wine

My heart is your flower

May I poke you with a needle as if

__you were a dead stick in the mud

____trying to climb out of the

______mold that entered the

________time warp, but forgot

__________how to let lizards

____________fly?

I know you showed up in the corners

__of my eyes

At times I do not cry

But you and me, baby

We know why

Hustling for fun I forget you

__like a mouse

Going out of style like a potato

I wing forth a brave parade

Hungry for forgiveness

Have you ever seen my mind?

I know you haven't

Because I've had it from you

__because I don't love you that

____way

Sorry I misunderstood your feverish

__highs and lows

But madness has caught me under

__the weather, seeing as how

____you're trapped and all, like

______a pig in a blanket

________I want to eat what's

__________on your mind, and

____________then I want to

______________EAT your mind

-

Is that too bad?

Don't get angry with me

I didn't steal your love seat

I ate bacon and ham with the

__rabbi yesterday

It was a Sha-barbeque

But my "heavy heart"

Never forgot of you

I know you like my salad

But speaking of trees

I don't think I like yours

Oh, you're such a sandwich grabber

You and your broken clamps

Can you clap for me with your man

__hitting me at the same time?

I'll be your basket ball

And you can eat me

Do you want to

Eat me?

THEN OPEN YOUR MOUTH THEN!!!!!
