If it Hurts


If it hurts, destroy it.
Kill the feelings with a shot
Of alcohol, barbituates,
Heroin or pot.

The silver screen can be quiet good
To use for an anaesthetic,
And opting out works very well
If you are not aesthetic.

The race we run against old age,
Poverty, tiredness and work,
Calls for too much stamina;
Far easier to shirk.

First you fall and then get up
Start to sink, then swim.
Surely it’s easier to drop out
Than struggle to keep in.
