Day 20 – In the Meantime

What you give me is a headache on all the worst days,
a slap on the wrist, a kick in the pants
’cause you’re broke on the harder stuff
more trouble than you’re worth
but it’s just you,
just you here.
Nobody else’s hands are up.

All I ever give you is disease, mindless bruising
a share in the sadness I’ve got left
’cause I’m broke on the harder stuff
more trouble than I’m worth
but it’s just me,
just me here.
Nobody else’s hands are up.

A goldfish in the tank at Walmart
says to the other:
“If we don’t die here, we’re gonna get scooped up,
I’ll come to your wedding if you come to mine.”
