Most days my life is so crazy and confusing.

It does not one bit of good to keep refusing..

I find no answers in the books I’m perusing

I’m told it’s all about the winning and losing.

And I think this more than a little bemusing,

leaving me battered, all so bloody bruising.

I guess, there are things I could be infusing.

Most days I believe I might take up boozing.

While channels on the idiot box I’m cruising,

show me stuff they tell me I should be using;

drugs on offer may leave me dead or oozing.

I cannot afford the rest, so no sense choosing,

and not an arrow in my quiver, to be loosing.

Need a nonviolent reference I can be reusing.

Stories I hear daily scare me or I am snoozing.

Bigotry, misogyny, hate so I can the blues sing.

And I find not one little bit of this shit amusing.

That is why my world is so crazy and confusing.
