...yeah I know - the boat!

By Brenton FPublished 2 months ago Updated 2 months ago 1 min read

not sure how to put this

things are fucky and askew

i need to know in simple terms

…what the fuck did i do?

was it something that i said?

something that upset the crew?

you can’t leave me dangling like this

…what the fuck did i do?

was there an invisible line that i crossed?

sorry – didn’t have a fuckin clue

so perhaps you’d like to explain to me

…what the fuck did i do?

i need to know where the problem lies

is it me or is it you

and again quite slowly and clearly

…what the fuck did i do?

was there some secret ritual i besmirched

i didn’t know; did you?

i’m with Jimmy on this one

…what the fuck did i do?

Every letter in every word in every line is a burden I no longer have to bear, how much is not enough, how little is too much?

I finally have an E-book!

Please buy it because I'm a shit salesman
