Random Poem:

Congress
CrudeEcstasy

two hours of sleep
 1
the most sleep I've gotten in a night
 2
all week
 3
is two hours of sleep.
 4
 
 
And this morning...
 5
oh god...
 6
the toll it took on my body..
 7
I crawled my way into the bathroom
 8
turned on the lights
 9
only to see
 10
that my lips had deflated.
 11
 
 
Tears ran down my cheeks
 12
as if they had found out it was
 13
sooo last season to cry
 14
and they were making a jump for it.
 15
 
 
WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME?!
 16
My lips are deflated!!
 17
definitely scared the shit out of my mother
 18
when I woke her at 5:30 in my fear.
 19
 
 
My lips can't be deflated!
 20
They just can't!!
 21
If my lips don't inflate
 22
than I'll have no lips
 23
just like the people in congress
 24
and I'll have to join
 25
because that's the only place I'll belong
 26
that and as a white televangelist
 27
wearing a golden suit with matching tambourine
 28
because they don't have any lips either.
 29
I'll be a lipless congressman
 30
in a golden suit
 31
with my hypnotizing tambourine
 32
saving the masses from themselves
 33
because they don't see the power of jesus like I do.
 34
 
 
BUT I DON'T WANT TO JOIN CONGRESS!!
 35
I WANT MY FUCKING LIPS!!
 36
 
 
It took two days, and a good nights sleep to make
 37
me see that
 38
my lips weren't deflated
 39
just chapped.
 40
 
 
oops
 41
