Moving Out Today?
the house is getting
more and more
the space is getting
I pray for you :)
out of it getting
out of it :)
oh my god? ? ?
done! ! !
clutter clutter clutter
every time a cabinet...
filling empty spaces
clogging up empty spaces
erasing erasing beautiful empty spaces...
trapped behind cabinet
under behind all furniture
is dirty disgusting dust
dirty disgusting dust
hiding hiding behind furniture
begs begs please no spring cleaning...
danger danger danger! ! !
nine ten years living
in the same house...
means clutter clutter
filling filling filling
in the whole house? ? ?
the more space
filling filling filling
filling till overflowing
filling with possessions...
bloody dust traps
trapping dust dirty things
shinny new possessions
waiting in shop shinny purchases
waiting destined to be new dust traps...
now when I see new things
with sparkling advertisements
I see selves flooded overflowing
with more more more things! ! !
potential new purchases dirty things! ! !
filling up my freedom mind spaces! ! !
each innocent outing
beware each innocent outing
risks more trap peril purchasing...
objects seen desired objects
eye candy colourful pleasing objects
are thumb hitchhiking seeking stray homes...
oh you soliciting hooker objects
forever seeking thumbed make out free rides
turning tricks in purchase possession make out rooms...
soliciting soliciting soliciting
seeking stake out customer free range homes
jail bait jail break rare escaping object sentences...
multiple innocent outings
each time we walk out household doors
risks more accumulation accumulation purchases...
oh for those innocent youth days
when we traveled light pack on backs
light on our backs all our world possessions...
freedom in our minds
journeys to new experiences
all the world new waiting open spaces...
