rime of the starving poet
To MLP

i have not eaten for a day
but i've seen many visions dainty
i have not eaten for a day
but masturbated plenty

i wisdom find in grains of rice
and in stolen sour wild plums
i wisdom find in grains of rice
and i curse my cup noodle crumbs

i hunt for deals whenever i can
but i never find too many
i hunt for deals whenever i can
and squeeze lifeless every penny

after the rent the lights and gas
come the internet and phone
after the rent the lights and gas
comes my good old student loan

i love my job and i hate my job
every other blessèd day
i love my job and i hate my job
but at night i'm free to play

with movies music song and word
i make immortal pacts
with movies music song and word
i forget my digestive tract

and though today i can barely walk
my brain's still lithe and snappy
and though today i can barely walk
payday's soon and so  yes  i'm happy

i have not eaten for a day
but i've seen many visions dainty
i have not eaten for a day
but masturbated plenty
