The book is due out 
in a month 
but they say 
the world will end 
tomorrow. 
Those fucking Mayans 
have everyone 
running scared. 
Their greatest contribution to humanity 
was 
fear. 
You’ve got to give it to them 
as they 
were really 
rather small. 
The book is due out 
in a month 
and a dancing whore clown 
is number one 
in the charts. 
She dresses 
in red meat 
and shows her pussy 
to the world. 
She’s a foul-mouthed 
new-world 
icon 
and 6 year old children 
flock to her like Mecca. 
I have seen it all before, 
I have witnessed the production line. 
And I can tell you, 
the product has become 
increasingly inferior. 
The book is due out 
in a month 
and Stand By Me 
is showing on TV. 
They don’t make films like that anymore, 
that depiction 
of growth 
through fear 
and bonding and adventure. 
Those boys 
became men 
that weekend. 
Woody’s had four movies 
and is not even close. 
The book is due out 
in a month 
and after that there is no hiding. 
If 
there is something wrong with me, 
everyone will soon know. 
But if they drop their coins 
to hate me 
I will pick them up 
and take the crap 
from a smoky bar 
in 
Havana.
