Some of us are gonna die faster than the other guys, ones I thought shoulda been shining my shoes. That’s how a gamble’s gamed, real until it’s razed away forcibly. Descend from ladder to chute and call that a truce.
So high, quite low, mid-range: domains you control. “Drink me,” shrink down. Make a toast to the loss, you allowed it. And if I’ve had enough of flora and fauna, then what is the drama? Hold me close til the next year’s trauma. What is the drama?
Wish I had said something but we can’t go back in time. Goons waltz in wearing shitkicking grins without reason, without cadence. So, we’re gonna die! Faster than our fathers make crime out of fiction, a silent cohesion. Less paranoia, more progress.
Haha, unknowns derange me. But I make it my own and own up, get down. This is happening cuz you allowed it. That’s enough of flora, fauna. What is the drama? You were splayed for the valet, a cap gun on ya. Now put your hands where I could see ‘em. Is there any drama?
