poem from book One Thousand Plastic Trinkets Nick Armbrister
How many people have it all and want more?
Just one more toffee from the box
Or one more lady to make love to
Or a car 10 miles per hour faster
Is the grass always greener?
Step over the fence to see
There’s no way back over tho
Make a choice and away you go
Cross your fingers it’s better
Are all people like this?
May I look inside their heads?
Then I’ll know all the answers
I’ll stay here at least for now
I’ll observe the winners and losers
