Awry!!

the world is upside down

what the hell is going on

your draws is showing

your junk is exposed

nobody wants to see that part of you

put your junk back under cover

what makes your shit more important than everybody elses

what makes your cockeyed opinion more important than everybody elses

everybody has those

so stop doing crazy shit trying to put yours front and center

and get over yourself!!!!

not again –
this awakening
rests firmly
in the hands of time, will this last
or shatter like fragile glass
