a short poem about adolescent growing up...
Shiny

Shiny like a brand-new penny.
Daddy isn’t getting any?
It’s later than you think it is.
You know it ain’t nobody’s biz.

Nothing like a fricken quickie.
Out all night and got a hickey.
Think it’s cheap, but it’s really not.
Now look at what you went and got.

Find a doctor and pay those fees.
Big ass f-ing needle, Jeweez!
Maybe, a little bit of it?
I swear I’ll stop, just take the tip.

Now I’m sitting looking pretty.
Slipped and ruined my precious kitty.
Went and gambled and lost the bet.
This one ain’t been named just yet.
