Older and uglier by the day
…and damn proud of it.
Life has done this to me
… and damn sure of it.
Not important what you see here.
Everything needed is out there.
Plastic, silicon, dye, and ink.
But rotting corpses will always stink.
Spending fortunes to make a change.
All of these parts we can rearrange.
Before long you won’t need to wonder.
Resembling neighbors six feet under.
The truth was there from the start
…and that’s the beauty part.
