Dying Is A Possibility


Thee importance of my mind

What is it?

The reasons for my heart

What are they?

I don't always understand

The talking chickens at hand

But I can milk a cow

__at any expense

The bulldozer of my relief

Is shot out from under the sky

But pay the piper nothing

And never look me in thee eye

The walking souls

__dig deep into the pockets

But the biggest meal ticket

Is the hotdog stand down the street

Ain't that neat?

Even the sky walks off

__the meat platform

But if I beg the badger

__for anymore scraps of food

____I may be beheaded

If I walk the plank

__down by the sea

All are welcome to watch me die

Make no room for desert

For your nutrition is in this

"The colonization of masked delusions"

I can only care not

When a wet pillow

__wept on with tears

____smothers me senseless in the night

As honored prostitutes

__walk on by

Spitting on my tombstone

And throwing rocks at my roses

If anger isn't enough

How 'bout a sandwich

__full of mixed emotions?

If you see the Mad 'Katter

Tell him how pleased I am

__of my "wagging tail"

If the news finds me hanging

__by a rope

____with a bag of dope

______over my head as a sign

________of lost hope

Win me thee awards

When Thee Oscars come around again
