Green Pants

June 1, 2018

 

 

 

 

I washed my green pair of pants with my shit in the pockets

I ruined my wallet, I murdered my phone

And a book of ideas for the things I was writing

Was strangled and drowned in the soapy cyclone

A black ballpoint pen with the plastic exploded

The permanent ink ran all over and dried

Jet black proof I was stupid all down my right leg

And I laid down the corpse of my pants and I sighed

 

My green pair of pants got washed and the shit in my pockets got wrecked

It’s a stained wrinkled pile, what I washed became more of a mess

What you wash becomes more of a mess

 

Now my cell phone was cracked like a bitter man’s joke

Pressed what’s left of the button and the circuits inside 

Made a sound like a microwave chock full of hammers

And I watched as it clambered to live and then die

Damn my black leather wallet turned brown in the bleach

My 23 dollars more worthless than none

In a green deranged wad were my warped Founding Fathers

It seemed they were frowning because I was their son

 

And my green pair of pants got washed and the shit in my pockets got wrecked

It’s a stained wrinkled pile, what I washed became more of a mess

 

Oh, and my photo ID was completely scrubbed free of my picture, and age and my name

So now no one would see I was actually me, all they see is that I am to blame…

 

But I guess that’s a little bit melodramatic: 

a book, and a phone, an ID, and some cash

Aren’t hardly enough to feel stressed or in absence

If they must be destroyed and thrown in the trash

 

So why am I blue, why’s my head in a haze?

Every ounce of a setback’s the end of my days

Under terrible weight in this dismal position

The parable states, if it’s bearable listen:

 

Don’t wash your green pair of pants

‘Less you think that you can’t be depressed

Don’t wash your green pair of pants

What you wash becomes more of a mess

What you wash becomes more of a mess

What you wash becomes more of a mess
