What’s cute is that you think you’re funny.
For those who think cruelty is clever,
you were the perfect blend
of Joe Piscopo and Adam Sandler
meaning there was no help
you could give to that kind
No one needs
to be on this Earth, let alone
on, all dick jokes aside,
millions found you necessary.
I don’t know what that says
about them, but you don’t
owe anyone anything.
“Because if this is the only thing
then you might as well…”
Feel free to talk about it
