Shooting Blanks

COMPUTER - Grad Pic

This piece of paper was once pristine

This dibit of parchment now is a dream

Had to fold it like origami

Had to spike it with Kawasaki

Had to write on it, spit on it

Had to swear and crumple it up

This piece of paper was once pristine

This dibit of parchment now is a dream

Had to sprinkle it with glam & glitter

Had to put up with assholes claiming it litter

Had to spray it with gold perfume

Had to give it something to eat…legumes

This piece of paper was once pristine

This dibit of parchment now is a dream

Had to endure rainstorms wet & sad

Had to walk through mud looking bad

Had to eat dinner straight from a can

Had to come to conclusion & deviate the plan

This piece of paper was once pristine

This dibit of parchment now is a dream

Had to present itself as honky white

Had to bend low if it wasn’t so light

Had been painted green with dead presidents

Had to put up with prejudice

This piece of paper was once pristine

This dibit of parchment now is a dream

Had to endure all the crooks

Had to stick a finger in dike to avoid the brook

Had to get squeezed like juice

Had to watch that movie Footloose

This piece of paper was once pristine

This dibit of parchment now is a dream

Had to stomp on it a few times

Had to march while keeping time

Had to declare its territory

Had to protest the observatory

This piece of paper was once pristine

This dibit of parchment now is a dream

Had to serve as kindling for a fire

Had to dress dolls to get admired

Had to consist of Reed, not Rawls

Had it skipped to my Lou…it falls

This piece of paper was once pristine

This dibit of parchment now is a dream

Had to get cut into snowflakes

Had to somehow compensate

Had to become graffiti or confetti

Had to endure palms sweaty

But all in all, this piece of paper is still pristine

And this dibit of parchment is everyone’s dream

About bognetta

Love has been so much more powerful than other people's control. I think it's all love, but sometimes it doesn't feel like love. That is because so many people are defensive, protective, and do not care to trust in that four letter word...love!
