ORIGINAL POEM: “She Said”

It was better in my day.
 
She said,
“You’re the kind of guy
Who could get in a fight
In heaven’s parking lot”
 
She said,
“That straight jacket
Looks
Looks kinda good on you”
 
She said,
“Coal isn’t
Coal isn’t that bad a present
You can throw it at the people you don’t like.”
 
She said,
“There is nothing,
Nothing more unnerving
Than Eden.”
 
She said,
“I sat and I stared
At the sun all day
Trying to search for wisdom
And the one thing I learned
Was that you shouldn’t sit
And stare at the sun all day”
 
She said,
“I’ve been to the end of my rope
So many times
I might as well
Set up a tire swing.”
 
She said,
“I wanna be the first person
To tell a joke
That’s so offensive that
I end up in a labor camp.”
 
She said something
Something about the Jackhammer choir
Something about the Jackhammer choir
But I didn’t understand it.
 
And her spirit may be free,
Her spirit may be free,
Her spirit may be free,
But her ass
Is gonna cost ya.
