– running out of reasons –

I should feed my piggy bank more,

make my financial bed more tasty.

I should not leave my mother behind;

the neighborhood is more of a war zone than ever.

I should return to my old job;

it’s summertime, and the livin’ ain’t so easy.

I should not even try to pursue the siren,

for I’ll crash and burn at sea anyway.

.

.

.

.

I should shut the hell up

and run with my gut.
