You Should See the Other Guy

Life counts down one day at a time

while the invisible referee

armed with only a whistle and a scythe

counts up

while we’re face down on the mat

looking up at the stars

and little birdies that circle our heads

and you think I look bad?

you should see the other guy

the guy that got hit by the bus today

I took the bus today

the bus did not take me

not yet

you think I’m morbid?

you should see the other guy

half my age

already thinking he’s middle aged

and eating his vegetables already.
