the cantor of what ifs

rich healed but poor in charity

make do with petitions nobody reads

can you eat paper?

served empty stomachs before bed

you liked her for the very things that tried to kill

a blue jay lands in…

“Superbowl is coming up REAL SOON”


So what if I am?

I want more so….

So what if I am??

I do not care I desire things…

So what if I am greedy???

I have needs that are not being met…

So who cares if I am greedy????

If I want to be better isn’t that good?

So why do those around me shun me??

I am bettering myself with hard work

I deserve to be more and to be greedy, so?????

At the end of the day I am…

Veruca Salt, I WANT IT NOW!!!
