What Should I Be Like?

Should I be happy and glad?
Should I be angry and mad?
Should I be upset and sad?
Should I be boring and bland?
Should I tell you how easy this is?
That the world is an oyster,
and we are all geniuses?
Do you see how bored I am?
this shit is the easiest,
and I'm the fucking man.
Do you even understand?
Do you even care?
Do you ever stare,
at my crazy antics?
I do it for peanuts.  Kicks.  Shits.
Can't wait to be done with this.
Can't wait to start businesses.
Can't wait until I'm finished.
Matter of fact,
I am.


  1. Cool. Alright. C-Cool. Alright.

    I'd run away, but he'll find me!

  2. "I do it for peanuts. Kicks. Shits."
    love the line!

  3. I like the final line. So abrupt/matter of fact.
    perfectly expresses the "Oh wait, I forgot I'm already over this bullshit" sentiment.
