Spinning the chamber…

Category: Poetry/Lyrics

I remember drinking years away,
But I can’t say what happened.
I walked from threat to fear to
Pant pissing reality, wondering
Why the hell am I alive?

But I woke up, carpet mouthed,
Aged and wrinkled, gray haired,
And still wondering, why in the hell
People who supposedly loved me,
Ever let me get this way at all.

So I look at my kids and ask myself,
Why it’s a big deal who gets the Playstation,
And who gets the Wii or the cell phone,
Or the fucking computer, when I
Know the loaded chamber awaits
Us all…
