giving up and buying in

fuck it, you know
you probably don’t really have it in you
you’re probably better off just buying that ticket to Dockers-ville
get yourself a pair of comfortable shoes and paint yourself plaid
get that beard or at least start putting money aside for one
make that beige minivan your shining brass ring
and do whatever you can to get it
and a garage to keep it in, of course
you’ll need a bath mat and place mats and a HAZ-MAT
to dump your soft, bloated body when it’s finally time to give up
on water and air and food and laughter and walking
the same way you gave up on life
