Against The Pricks

January 28, 2008

 I used to kick against pricks,

But then l logicked the pricks

Out of existence and now,

I have no reason to kick.


I have no habits to kick

I have no demons to shift

I have no burden to lift,

I have no reason to kick.

 

I’d write a letter to you,

I don’t have time for that now.

I’m far too busy today,

I don’t have time for that now.

 

I’m in a hurry to state

an unequivocal case,

It’s just that money is time

and time is money.

 

It’s in how I see myself.

Am I here to please others,

Or to act for myself?

 

It’s like a battle of wills.

If you have an agenda,

You have the initiative

On unsuspecting opponents

Who don’t know how to play.

 

Fall over themselves to help,

Because it’s nice to be wanted.

It’s a dangerous game to play,

Cos folks are explosive,

 

They blow up in your face

And you lose all that you’d gained

And if you’re badmouthed, you’re dead,

So just accept it.

 

You have to give if you take

Or you end up on your own,

It’s a simple equation

that becomes so complex.

 

A person looks pretty simple,

 from the outside at least.

If you get yourself sucked in,

you may not ever get out

 

And you can drink all you like 

And you can drink all you like

And you can postpone your life,

It will still be happening

 

And you can miss all your chances, 

You don’t have to succeed,

Which is why most people don’t,

It’s pretty simple.
