In General

My friends tend to laugh when I bare my soul
and slowly nod when I tell a joke

These things occur to me only when I’m high
and might have no truth whatsoever

I’m most honest when purely drunk
yet somehow pure belief still eludes me

Strange how my worst lies are the most believable
since I tend to succeed at that which interests me least

Sacred cows give milk to the poor
and the poor throw up on their shoes

if they’re lucky and then of course
clouds have more ambition than I want
