I just read about temperatures in India
Birds are falling out of the sky,
Wynn Bruce doused himself in fossil fuel
But it’s still just as likely we’re all going to die.

The firefighters doused him with water from a fountain
But his injuries were far too extensive,
It was nothing but…

I want a Suzuki
GSXR
Something that
Will take me
Far
Faster and cheaper
Than a car
I want a Suzuki
GSXR.

I want to feel
The wind in my hair
Speed away
From troubles and cares
I want to pull away
At speed
So all my worries
Disappear.

I want more zeros
In my pay
So I can do things
My own way
More money than
I’ll ever spend
Less need to work
More time to play.

I want to live
As I see fit
I want to tell
The boss I quit
I want to break
Out of this cell
I want you
To come as well.

Maybe maybe
It could be,
What’s causing my anxiety.
The feeling that
It’s going wrong,
Maybe it was all along.
The lack of planning
Knowing what
Or being sure
That I should not.
Maybe I just
Need a thing,
That get’s me up
And makes me sing.
A strong desire
Doubts expelled,
Something that
Has me compelled,
Towards a goal
I must attain
That must be it,
But then again.
What if I fail,
Or it’s a no
What will I do
Where will I go?
The sky will cry
And I’ll be sinking,
I wish that I could
Just stop thinking.
I wish I was
A man of action
Then I could really
Get some traction.
Get a grip
And get a goal,
Get somewhere
Get some soul.
Away from it
Far from doubt
I really must
Figure this out.
