poem

I wrote this a while ago, but I feel it will spice up my journal if I post a bit of poetry so here goes...

One Week
---------------
I wanna be fat for a week.
I wanna be a chick for a week.
I wanna be black for a week.
I wanna smoke crack for a week.

I wanna sell shoes for a week.
I wanna be a pimp for a week.
I wanna drink booze for a week.
I just wanna choose for a week.

Live like a quarterback, or an icecream truck driver.
Always come back when I feel a bit wiser.
Start a cult and move out to Bangladesh.
Shoot up like an underage whore and sell my flesh.

I want to be the IRS for a week
I want to be an asian smut peddler for a week.
I want to be a second wife with HIV.
I want to be blind so I can't see.

I want to be the guy who draws the cartoons for the paper.
I want to get put on the stand and swear I didn't date rape her.
Host a pirate radio show straight outta Tokyo.
I wanna be a mail-order bride just to get into the US.
I wanna be a serial killer and then turn myself in and confess.

I wanna be a daredevil
who breaks into tall buildings and jumps off just to start trouble
I wanna OD on valium because my boyfriend told me I'm overweight.
I want to be the pope for a week, so I can rid the world of evil.

I want to be Jerry Springer, and Pat Buchanon, and Vincent McMahon.
Or better yet I want to be Anna Nichole Smith.
Suck an old rich guy's dick and then take his money.
I wanna be everyone for a week just so I can know if life is really this funny.

Very amusing. If you enjoy that kind of writing you might like my personal haiku page. I plan to write a few hundred of them and sell them as a novelty book or something like that.

aha
I'm not a big fan of haikus usually, but those are pretty cool. I like the surprise factor!

Nice... I like the idea behind this poem. Well done.

It scans kinda like a rap... I could see Eminem performing this, heheh.

Thanks... I do listen to Eminem so he may have influenced me, at least stylistically. I like your username, by the way. Princess Bride is a really wonderful movie.
