What's Nuts About It Anyway?

-

"Waht is love?"

Why's she gone?

What's the time?

Oh, it's lunch time

__but, oh, what the fuck?

Dreams portrayed

Me as a student

On the camp-

-Us of the Cal'

No, I'm not

But one can still dream

__can't he?

Losing time

Going blind

It's the works

That she done on me

9 years younger

And already a grad'

So, she past

Well, so what?

So done studying

__and learning what's nuts

I break away

Make my own path

It's all paved out

Though dad is gone

But up above

And looking out

I drinks the drops of love

From God there and such

But if you got a minute

__on this furlough

Come join the race

__and leave a message for the robots

I want clam chowder

But I am sour

Time will lesson me the where-abouts

Of strangers dancing it all out

Gettin' freeky to the souds

Of answers without

Are they gonna get me?

I'm going to find out

Eventually

Eventually

Oh, God

Slap my face

Such thought is silly

Just WHOIS going to kill me?

Will I REALLYfind myself dead?

Will SHE find my body on the ground?

Bloody death all surround-

-Ing? and in a dark night?

Changing into Heavenly white?

God, my mind

Is thee only answer why

WhyI would trip that trip

And see my dying night

Flash before my eyes

I can see no end from here

Still, it's near

If all I can reach is 38

I'll know why

I'll understand just briefly

The memories of every one in my life

Fade to nothing as I spend

__more and more time with myself

Alone, in the cold life of hard work
