What's With All These Labels?


I cannot force people to accept me

So I won't

Plain and true

The case of hysteria

Is not comfortable with me

Maybe I'm just not compatible

With anybody

I see lots of labels

On my head

I take them with me


I'm not just "spoiled and rotten"

I'm "cynical and bitter"

The tone of my voice alone

Is unwelcome

Never the less

I must contribute into society somehow

If I am to earn the priv'lege to live

But what right do I have

To bight off everybody's heads

__in the process?

I just think being "loving and affectionate"

At the cost of "losing humility"

And "being unreal"

Just doesn't strike me as

The right way to go about my day

So if I don't really have a hen nest

Where am I really layin' my eggs?

I'm just plain not

I don't even know why I cluck
