and cut your hair.
Get a job,
and stop caring
because you've stopped believing
because cynicism is cheaper and more fashionable,
because all your energy is used up
trying to stay apathetic
toward the things you really hate
but have to put up with anyway
for whatever reason
society has given this decade.
Stop wasting your time on roses
and other ephemeral things,
Stop writing, stop painting
and for God's sake stop asking us
Go to work,
eat, sleep, don't dream,
then repeat as necessary
until you too become dust
and perpetuate the cycle.
