THIS POEM IS ABOUT A RAT

I WAS A RAT AND I SAID FUCK HUMANITY
I SAT IN A PLASTIC CELL AND BURIED MY NOSE
IN SHREDDED NEWSPAPER AND LIFE WAS SHORT
MUCH SHORTER THAN THAN YOURS

I CANNOT LOOK AT MY FACE ANYMORE
WITHOUT LIKE
LIKE PITCHING A SOFTBALL
INTO A LAKE

I WAS A RAT AND I COULD BLOG ABOUT MY IDEALS
AND I COULD WRITE POEMS AND SAY SHIT ABOUT SHIT
I LEFT SHIT IN THE CAGE KNOWING YOU WOULD CLEAN IT UP
AND I LIKED WATCHING YOU CLEAN IT

I WILL NEVER PARTICIPATE
IN THIS THING
THIS UH
THIS THING THAT TASTES LIKE BATTERIES IN A WATERFALL

I WAS A RAT AND MY TAIL WAS NAKED
EVERYONE LOOKED AT THEMSELVES AND FELT HORNY
BUT I DON'T UNDERSTAND LIFE AT ALL
I CAME TO LIFE AS A SUDDEN BURST OF MATTER

I DON'T TRUST A DAMN THING
