Why I'm Looking Like This

-

In the reflection of cost

Inward into the suction of consequence

I look like this because

My dyslexia made me mistake

Hair tonic for a product

That makes your hair fall out

And not stop falling hair

And I obeyed when the barber

Lied to me and told me to try it

I look this way because

I take medication

__so can't afford lunch

But that's not my fault

__at all

I look like this because

The government cannot afford

To give me enough money to drive

They say it's my father's money

But I know ev'ry one who paid taxes

Put into the pot luck of social security

I look like this

Because I did not take care of my teeth

__on time

And I still don't floss

I look like this because

I've been cursed with a small dick

It doesn't even run

__on my dad's side of the family

But my honey said "it is as small as a pencil"

I look like this because

I ruined my eyesight frying on acid

To discover what I could not without doing so

Is it my fault I wanted to experience

__something not frying would never let me?

I had to heighten my senses to see 3D.

And open my mind

Somehow

I look like this because

Mother nature never gave a fuck

When creating what I become

When I came out of the womb

I was "born to be this way"

That's even what God would say

I look like this because

You people of this fucked up world

Piss me off too much to smile

You treated me like shit my whole life

And you don't deserve my forgiveness

Because you won't forgive me

You're just lucky murder is illegal

And that I have morals

You punk ass bitches!
