it's a petty world!


rate 5

it doesn't matter what you do
people will be judging you
they'll point their fingers laugh and say
look at his clothes, he must be gay!
they'll measure you from top till toe
expect you'll have tickets, front row
two story house, make that three
fourty two inches L c d
chesterfield sofa, hand made table
a young wife, willing and able
two kids, a dog, a Ph. D
a most impressive pedigree
fuck it!, I say
I really don't care
mock my clothes, my car, my hair
no matter how much you try, I will survive
'cause to me, I'll always be a rate 5

Uten f ordet får man ikke alltid sagt det.
Imponerende lekenhet med ord og oppsett. Enkelt - og lett.

you are a 5.

i like how you describe the great american dream (world-dream) of riches, with such disdain... it is not the size of your t.v. that matters, but the size of your...........

heart. :)

Rated 5, but hey its just a number, it is your work that stands on its own merit. I like your attitude and you got it out here in quite good fashion. Strip away all the finery of every man and it is the heart you will see is of real value.
'I like it, i love it and i want to see more of it.' Good write.
