Day 260
12:52 am

a sponsor

i am thirty six
she still gives me toothbrushes
it makes her my ma


they have jobs

they have jobs
they have jobs
they get pa-a-a-aid
on the daily

gotta find a job
wanna find a job
i gotta make some ________
for my baby


this is a song

it’s meant for you to sing along
if you’re on unemployment
like me

you are not allowed to sing it
if you are not

it is bittersweet
isn’t it?

you really wanna
sing this song with me
you’re so glad you
have that job

what, you’re not?


well, then you’re really
not allowed
to sing this song
