What Happened To Irony?


I dream of a world of cats barking

__and dogs meowing

Where cats chase dogs

__and the birds and mice chase the cats

I went lopsided in the world

Dancing like Crunchy Cheetos

I wept in laughter

And I hung my head up with tears of excitement

But thee irony of every night weirdness

Just seems to not be ironic enough

I wanna see odder stuff

Like a bunch of eggs

Chasing one sperm

A clock eating cheese

Or a hamburger throwing up

__and then it's puke being refried

____and served like beans to a pen and a book

Maybe a talking bottle of water

__saying cuss words

____and a car race in reverse

______as banks rob criminals

________and coins start to take a pee

Dead people walking isn't enough

America bullying other countries has gotten boring

Even talking birds rapping

Would not be interesting enough to me

Where's the real impossablenesss?

Where's our flying cars?

Where's our world peace?

Where's my visual hallucinations?

It's just like the world of people

Is just not trying hard enough

To amuse me

But I guess the belief of it being their fault


Is all thee irony that can truly be

What a waste of evolution

If you ask me
