Folded Cranes...

I don't want to have to fight through this again/ SS minnow with a life boat missing and packed with nitro glycerin/ start it and finish it/ dust collector owl with pigeon breath/ hunter with wisdoms edge/ Midwest son of a simple man/ carpenter heartburn/ or is it the lungs mix with the singed oaks ash/ this is the two shits I give hopes chance/ whose tutelage is conducive to a limp home/ I'm not used to excuses/ I'll say that I'm sorry and tomorrow keep moving/ truth is I don't know what the fuck I'm doing/ its astronaut or Asimov/ ask who bought the NASA branded shuttle to crash the dugout/ trading gas for blood or passion for law/ To sit back relax and watch the dragon run his mouth/ the king can thumb his crown to tilt the scales/ until the dumb it downward spiral fails/ sheep shouldn't cry to wolves themselves/ but when the siren sounds only the most violent and opportunist come running/ and they're not using excuses/ they save sorry for tomorrow and keep looting/ truth is, hope isn't what your used to/

this is my response to my duties/ my constant struggle with ruin/ still trying to round it out/ this is how I acknowledge the doom and the constant subtle reminder what's brewing/ and stay nonchalant/ I'm not manic depressed just a man trying to manage his stress/ where the golden gate shades shangri-la/ these folded cranes can wave but they can't take off/
