I'm Positive About This So Therefore It's Positive Thinking

Nobody reads poems, pal
books neither
nobody is going to read this crapola, buddy
why don't you just open a gas station
or get a good factory job
they pay fourteen an hour at western polycom
nobody looks at art, bozo
why are you wasting your life on that
how much did you spend on all this canvas and paint
you need shoes
can you wear these paintings,
nobody cares
only assholes like you
you stupid bonehead
who gives a damn what T.S. Eliot said
when you boil it down it comes out to a big "beats the shit out of me" anyway
so why even say it, I mean why not just chase some tail, instead.
Ya know?
