we the willing, lead by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. we have done so much for so long with so little, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.

We play games with our cigarette smoke
Making hearts and O’s
Just like the chain-smoking caterpillar
In Alice in Wonderland.
Laughing and choking
On our years of bad choices
Gasping for fresh air
With a smile on our faces, we live
So close to dying, we live
With a gift, unique
Realizing our masochistic ways.
