In a clay hole surrounded by mortar rounds and
two broken vending machines with the image of POTUS

Everything’s REAL and prepped for the Furnace
With a bottle of opiates and 22 ½ gray pairs of socks

Just don’t play the role of the psycho (but claim your

Turns into a blade to get rid of humpty dumpty & your vertigo
