natural disaster

please don't break the lil bird's wing
with your contagious suffering

cocaine, heroin and caffeine you avoid
just nasty thoughts to fill each void

a great giant hole once housed your brain
actually caught the last train

what about the lil fish not yet afloat
has emotions growing as you bloat

this stuff is just as strong
up to you to help them to belong

we offer you family
even if our name is not Emily

as you rule from your bed of a throne
acting like a forgotten old crone

neglecting your knight of nights
selfish, pitiful stomping on other's rights

every one wants to be in Paris for the spring
but we go on and see what our reality may bring

once I thought pity was my desire from others
finally stopped and changed my druthers

not what I really wanted at all
learned how to stand tall

it does not appear like magik
sorry you gotta work it, I know ,tragic

just get a grip
everyone is not here to trip

you up or take anything away
try our best to love you each day

I know you wanna fight
cause that's what you learned as right

but this is not back then
time to begin again

You have everything and more
your depression is such a bore

look around at the world that you can touch
compared to some you have so much

some peeps would kill
if only your shoes they could feel

stop being so freaking rude
doesn't work with your thin veil of prude

the powerful, the pathetic
most dangerous kind of ick........
