My Answer To Everything I Could Ever Be Asked


"Chloey is a cat"

__seems to be my answer to everything

Why I have been made a mess

Why I laid an egg

Even if it was a chicken egg

Why 1 + 1 = 5

Why thinking is what I do with my thinker

Why food is bought in a store

__with money I could've easily spent elsewhere

Why when I take all the crap from the world

__and carry their weight on my back

Why when I sit down to watch the news

My twinkling mind knows nothing of what time it is

Why my only obligation is to be with my lover

My one and only

Why the world looks like a marble

In Thee Eyes of God

Why how everything seems to blow up in your face

__when you die

And you can't do anything, at all

__to try to keep it all together

Why "the most impeccable donations

Intertwine without meaning"

__just like what I just said

Why ignoring the baldingness of my head

Is just as easy

As how hard it is to shave it that way

Why when I look up to outer space

It doesn't look like that's where I'm looking

But as the world reaches out to me

And asks me with their driven nerves

__that drove them to ask

____"why is Chloey being a cat

______thee answer to all of life's problems?"

It only goes to show

Thee answer remains the same

"Chloey is a cat"

And that's never gonna change
