And sometimes it's Wednesday,
And sometimes hope is lying,
Pot of leeches covered in gold,
And sometimes tears are worthless,
Sincerity a clown,
Baby showers at the funeral,
Vegetarian hamburgers.
And sometimes words don't speak,
Blank page encyclopedia,
Inaudible music,
Trees falling in lonely forest
And sometimes poetry doesn't rhyme,
My bright darkness,
Smooth jazz with a shot of nirvana,
Bacon from a skinny pig,
Flat coke, yes, I like flat coke.
