Eat your words, ignore all the shame. We could be, “never were”, “never speak”. It’s a forever bender with me I tried, and quit for a challenge. I left Mom and Dad with a balance. Here’s to losing weight and losing meals I coughed up while my voice gives out. I’ve got pills, but I wake with doubts That I can’t sing what nobody needs to hear. Oh, I’m petty-full I pissed in your garden, now nothing’s going to grow Aren’t we all poets? Yeah, I know. I collect what I can remember, in a box because I’m getting old. Forever bender Nothing’s going to grow
