Should I read, or should I write,

Definitely a first world problem.

Both take a certain type of skill,

Concentration, and time, like a seed.

I could write my will,

But that would only take a few minutes.

Here’s my pile of dirt, it’s yours.

Plant your seed and see what grows.

Ya, I already read about

You and your therapist!

What a sleazy bastard,

Or maybe, he was an angel.

I could write a story

About a sleazy angel bastard

Who sent me off alone

When I realized he was crazier than me.

Should I read, or should I write,

Or should I read what I wrote?

Think I’ll take a puff

“Baby, here’s to ya!”
