It's On the Truck

CHECKING

Checking and checking and checking.


THE HANDWRITING ON THE WALL

Is I don’t have premium.


ROLE PLAYING

I’m a block of suet in a cage.
Birds peck at me like Roman numerals.


MEMORY CARE

How many of the 17 avenues in Monopoly can U name?


TWO CANS OF SOUP

That’s what anger can do:
Make you crazy. Who goes to Walmart
Just to buy two cans of soup?


SCREEN POSITIVITY

I believe in what I call
Screen positivity
She said
Of her entertainment philosophy.


PLEASANTVILLE

Deadly nightshade is actually just rude more than anything.
And dead man’s curve is a straightaway.


ABACUS

Your activation is required.


HAPPINESS

It’s on the truck.


REWILDING

Home from skoo.


TWO HOURS OF HOLIDAY PAY

The lady goes it’s clearly stated in the handbook.
I told her oh no I researched it.
I told her I said I’m calling the labor board.


MEAT PHONE

I mean yeah in a way it’s kind of neat.
Definitely a total niche thing.


CLOTHES

I haven’t worn this in forever.
These I never wore.


WORRY

Is my identity now at risk after holiday shopping?


DREAM COME TRUE

I’ve always wanted to live in a shithole country.
Now thanks to your ass
USA USA USA.


BREAKFAST SPECIAL

I’ll take the two eggs, half waffle, half armadillo.
The armadillo real crisp. It'll break if you drop it.
