If You Can Get By - Poem by Joshua Baker

If you can get by
With an antisocial clown
Who drinks to excess as a rule…
If you can get by
With being held down
By sarcastic quips from a tool...
If you can get by
with being told you're just ass
and seeing 'Love' only in the form of a text...
If you can get by
with hearing after class
that everyone's been told you're just sex...
If you can get by
with the occasional darkened eye
and being told 'say you fell into a door'...
If you can get by
with coming home to your guy
stinking like booze and the sweat from a whore...
if you can get by
with the items listed above
and swear to me you will stay true,
then I can get by
and in fact, say that id love
to do more than just get by with you.
