This is the world, or in the way I perceive it
Thereís too much work to do
Never finished
Itís kind of a theme here
Very Sarah Winchester

Everyoneís got this empty, burned out, soulless look
Like an ice cream man
Nothing unusual
Some involuntary mantra
Nothing unusual

And so your answer to all things problemy is
Just one glorious day
With nice weather
So you donít give off that spooky Howard Hughes vibe
You know what I mean

My world, or in the way you perceive it
Nobody works there
Living off their post-retail existences
Only the freelance stuff
Everyone is guided into a more casual state of mind

The Mantra of Doom
Nothing unusual
Here that is ďSo the most untrue-iest thingĒ
But remember people still feel that way
But they canít get me to shut up

Being loud
Screaming at three in the morning
Losing my mind with ninja-like precision
Unpredictable as the nervous park squirrel

Make it natural
Nothing unusual
The options make it easier to decide
Itís all still better than selling books

Purr like a kitten; Scratch like a bitch

snuffy-snuff & prozac
I like the way you invent words like "problemy" and "untrue-iest". I, too, invent words that make sense to me. Shakespeare is famous for it - well, he's famous for a lot of things, isn't he?


I wonder how many poems would get written if everyone were on prozac

prozac fun
heh I love inventing words..^^ But actually this is a found poem. I took phrases from a comic book titled "I Feel Sick" and rearranged/turned/twisted them into a poem.

thanks for the comment
