You May Have Taught Me How To Laugh Myself But I Want You To Know I Don't Think It's Funny! - Poem by Gordon Fitzgerald

So listen up you motherf....ers
And I'm sure you will agree
What you all call fun ain't no piece of cake for me
When your family's disfunction makes your thelife a misery that at five years old fun don't come naturally.When you're picked on at school
And your own two brothers Call you Jumbo, Gannet, Fat cuss and others And they're telling you 'Grow up stop being such a baby! But you cant act your age whatever that is cos you is so crazy, trying to stay sane, keep ahead of the game. So I had to cut loose, get free of that noose. But I got another noose, this ones called addiction and that's why I'm here and that's why I'm bitchin'!
