Things I Do When...(Military Life) - Poem by Ivana Mabry

follow the foots steps of the dead,
point a gun to your head,
smile then laugh.. then scream and yell.
run from your shadow and ring a bell.
talk to yourself in a whispering voice-
LiCk a button cuz it's moist.
skip then walk then skip again
look at a spoon until it bends
sing the song you just made up.
and when you get thirsty...pour air in a cup
eat fries with a fork and spinach with your toes
when someone ask you a question pick you nose
make up words and say that they're real
every time someone talks ask them..'how do you feel? '
close one eye and walk with a limp...
if anyone asks say you're a pimp
lay in the grass until day is night.
find a random person and start a fight
when the sun comes up smile and wave...
but make sure that you didn't shave
don't wonder why just do what i say...
things just work out better that way
