OJ in the morning

Sip

Sip

Sip

Slurp

Drip

Drop on my shirt

Today is already off to a bad start

Stains are bad

Stains are bad

Stains are bad

I will accept the uncertainty

Stains are bad

This was not the bees’ knees

You have no purpose

You have no purpose

You have no purpose

Drip

Drop

On my shirt

Push him down the stairs

Hear the crack of his neck

Drip

Drip

Drip

Slurp

Drop on my shirt

Drop of blood on the floor

Hit the jugular

Burn the juggler

His face melts

Drip

Drip

Drip

Sit still and take the test

Snap out of it

Think about something else

Just try to move on

Sigh

Sigh

Sigh

Drip

Sigh

Drop on my shirt

Stains are bad

Necks go crack

Drip

Drip

Drip

Drop

Slurp

On my shirt

Could I do that

Do I have the ability

I think I could

The feeling is probably amazing

I think I should

Should not

Drip

Slurp

Crack of the neck

Melted face

I can’t breath

Inhalers are overrated

I don’t want to embarrass myself

Mine really should be gold-plated

Drip

Slurp

Crack

On my shirt

Melting faces

Dead in the dirt

As I should be, no

As I shouldn’t be

Ok, we’re done here.
