Getting On

What kind of half baked  
wimpy asshole
did you turn into  
Scared of heights  
afraid of water  
You cant stand the sight  
of your own blood  
and it's getting harder  
for you to remember  
where you left your car  
Maybe it's better  
you don't drive at all  
If you do ever find  
your front door keys  
and manage a proper walk  
you'll be muttering to yourself  
be careful in case you fall  
Out there  
the air is full of germs  
so just check the bushes  
where burglars could hide  
Remember to take  
a shovel for protection  
and to remove the dangerous dog shit  
from the lawn  
Be brave  
don't think about rabies  
the threat of nuclear war  
or the latest medical scare  
Just consider how lucky you are  
your two arms and two legs  
can get you not to quickly back inside  
unscathed  
without losing anymore hair
