Anyone- Remember to Smile

this is a cold world kid

they eat wide eyed eight year olds like you

for breakfast out there

and i know what you're thinking

that can't be true

there's good in everyone

you just have to dig deep enough

blah blah blah

that's the kind of crap preschool storybooks teach

but their out dated and optimistic

no one has written a story book in years

you know why?

because the last story book writer was shot down in the street

for telling people they should try to love more

so you want some kind of direction

some moral advice on how to live?

here it is

keep your head down and your knees stiff

never let them sense the fear

never do anything to make them think

you're challenging them

and most important of all

remember to smile

The End
