ice cream is a temporal matter

got cops for the crew, cops for the crowd
but no cops came to cut me down

sadder, lost the ladder
stuck on the roof
madder, doesn't matter
cuz only ones who've
believed me, tried to retrieve me
but the ladder broke
and so did the tree
small, raw, wa-
tered by acid rain, pain, coke
so, look
it's the paparazzi
swervin, servin up
fresh new celebrity
final sale, ya'll betta hurry,
buy one get one free!

oh, shit! gotta go pee
but i can't go freely
up here everyone'll see me
not that thatta matter, but uh
down there's forty camera shutters
for forty papers to strut my butt on the cover
smile, say cheese

Subsequently, i spot a chimney
and put out the fire
w' no one the wiser.

ice cream, a temperamental matter

on the news, noon, night, even 3
but no tv to satisfy me
can't never get free, flee
'n sever life, strife. I lack luck,
forever stuck
so you see-saw, sashay, all say:

Everybody now...
stuck in a rut, like a two-headed duck
all shot up, hopped up in a hot tub
with the jetstream on
screamin my song
when I been long gone
Thong? Sing-a-Long! Wrong number, can't touch my slumber.
Fuck wonder at the blunders, the blunts, or Starbucks
'round the bend and the Benz
spillin Guiness, my goodness, lament at a spent sentence.

ice cream is a temporal matter
so scream that to a weak bladder
Cancellation Lesson number 2 review
So listen:

Huh? what?
stuck in a rut, like fucks shittin' "what's up?"
"Life's too tough!" while spittin', sittin' in a suburban
sippin' bourbon, without aversion
no shiver, a new liver fo' the quitter
who's bitter, no better than butter
w' no supper, or succor;
a sucker deluxer.

special report: please repeat
in the sweltering heat
ice cream has melted

so my vanilla is no more
can't thaw no more, gone that's all, the roof no more,
goin' to fall 'n fall...

or jump! one, two, th-oh fuck!
It's time for chocolate!

Be careful not to spoil your work by using uneccessary bad language, will put a lot of people off and you are an extremely gifted poet.

I love that poem. Temporal matter - that's hilarious.

Reminds me of a poem I heard at a wedding recently (I run a preowned wedding dress classifieds site so I get invited to quite a few).

The guy listed every ice cream he'd ever eaten then proceeded to list every topping... odd, very odd.

This is a deep poem; some of your more critical readers should consider reading a little deeper. I really like the message I got. Thank you!

"butt on the cover" - brilliant))
sounds like rap.

p.s. I liked your poem, I really did,
It made my day by making me smile)
I felt so happy, like I was a kid,
Wish I could remain in this state of a child..
