>When Life Hands You

28 Feb

>fuck you
and your lemonade

give me
my life’s
lemons
and bloodied
hands

my world
of disease
and dead
ends
drama llamas
and dickheads

if i could
i would
give up
give in
give it
all away

and squirt
caustic
citric acid
in your
happy
fucking
eye

go smile
at someone
else

all the sugar
in the world
does not
change
your bullshit

to punch
