ADOLESCENT POETRY JAM: Here’s some garbage from age sixteen.

 

This ugly coaster/notebook contains most of my former teenage angst (now it’s adult angst) in lyrical form.  I wanted to be a singer, so I wrote tons of lyrics.  Then I realized I can’t sing all that well and tucked the dream away in my closet for several years.

In March, when I started this “website,” I found my green idea book while organizing my closet and started posting.  Adolescent Poetry Jam was born.

The last few posts under this category have been new tongue-in-cheek writings.  Jokes that I wrote that don’t stand too well, so I called them poetry.

It’s due time this section went back to it’s roots — my-daddy-was-mean-to-me lyrics that don’t stand too well, so I called them poetry.

 

Some Garbage From Age Sixteen (I’ll Do Everything For You) by Juice John

 

I’ll do everything for you,

I’ll do everything that you can’t do,

 

So just sit inside and watch your T.V. screen,

I’ll be outside just mowing the green,

Just like you said, around the fence,

While that stupid box makes you more dense.

 

Then you already are.

 

I’ll do everything for you,

I’ll do everything that you can’t do.

 

You say you work hard, like I don’t too.

But you wouldn’t believe the shit that I go through,

At work at home, just to earn a buck,

But your ears closed, you don’t give a fuck!@!!@

 

Like you ever will.

 

A poem by somebody who used to be a little fat bitch.

So there you have it.  A little background to the piece, I started working at fifteen.  Like a grand total of fifteen hours a week, but I used to act like I was Atlas carrying the globe.  Whenever my father would ask me to do chores, I would be a little fat bitch about it and start complaining about exhaustion and what-not.  In one my bitch fits, I wrote this poem — and I remember being proud of it.

As a (somewhat) grown up, the pride is gone.  I look at this drivel and feel a lot better about who I am today.

No matter how bad things get, at least I’m not sixteen again.
