Take The Black

Because nobody can tell what is written on the wind

And because nobody can tell just how quickly things can end

Turns out im not the kind of person who believes in fate or destiny

Just kinda go with the day and see what it throws at me

And then one day im at my desk

and like as usual you walked past

You gave me a smile

i gave you a joke

you gave me a sympathetic laugh

That i took into my heart

Where low confidence is rife

Instantly you're my khaleesi 

You be the moon of my life

Now that last rhyme was lazy

And im sorry it was obvious

But i feel those words

were the best words

To try and get my point across

You see, she'll send me an email from across the room

"Hey darling, how was your evening? What you get up to?"

And it makes my day just to think she thought of me

Before logging on, or signing in or making a coffee

So i reply

and try to be funny

and try to be awesome

and i try to play it cool

But everry sentence i write just looks like "awww i well fancy you"

Which would be cool if i didn't

But i do, So it's not

Im so fucking obvious

Im like shutter islands plot

And im so transparent

You can call me griffin

Im pretty fucking obvious

I guess Is what i are saying

But now every now and then

I like to fool myself again

That the smile that you did send

Was meant for more than just a friend

And like to just pretend

But now its the weekend

So I'll see you on Monday

There's a place in my heart

And the shape of it is you sized

Didn't realise at the start

But i can't say im surprised

That i now see you this way

And I hope that you understand

At night and throughout the day

I kinda just wanna hold your hand

And i know its unlikely

That you like me to

Im a bit of a nerd

But opposites do

Attract

It's a fact

n all of that

But still i look at my feet

and retract

And now it is Monday again

I get that stupid grin

I get to see your face again

And that's for the win

Because the weekend has been

Such a drawn out thing

Getting baked with my friends

Will this mundane ever end?

You see i like your face

And i think you're really pretty

You stimulate my mind

And you make me alittle giddy

And you make me alittle happy

And you make me act a fool

And you make me wanna slap me

For acting like said fool

For the things that i do

When i'm around you

Let me give you an example

If you were princess Toadstall

And you were captured by Bowser

Id come running and id save

Over mushroom hills

underwater levels

and deepest darkest cave

Fighting koopa troops, boos & goompas

Won't stop until the end

Jumping straight

from worlds 1, 3 then 8

The warp whistle is my friend

So im at the final level

And your face is in my sight

But before the heroic kiss

Time for the main boss fight

Now the main boss is easier

Than real life can be

Just jump on his head 3 times

And it's on to victory

But real life is harder

And i wish that i knew

All of the things to say and do

To try and impress you

And it's hard to talk to you

Without a cpu

So I'll see you on Monday

There's a place in my heart

And the shape of it is you sized

Didn't realise at the start

But i can't say im surprised

That i now see you this way

And I hope that you understand

At night and throughout the day

I kinda just wanna hold your hand

And i know its unlikely

That you like me to

Im a bit of a nerd

But opposites do

Attract

It's a fact

n all of that

But still i look at my feet

and retract

Back to the fact

That im a nerd

And that's that

With a johnny cupcakes hat

And an antisocial cat

Spurting ice and fire facts

Wishing that i was the bat!

So to my nerd cave i go back

To That Guy

Hello dad this be your son

And although you were gone

Before my life had begun

You've still had a profound effect

On how I have grown

So I'm writing you this poem

So it is known

That all the things i have done

Have been done not to become

That guy that i despise

That guy who has my eyes

That guy who left

When my mums life was a mess

And she didn't know what to do

Where the fuck were you?

And when the years went by

And let you see me she did try

But you were to busy

To care about my life

To busy with your new family

That came just after me

So if that's who you want to be

Then fuck you

Im a stronger person

Without you around

And my life is greener

Than your side of the ground

I've been brought up to respect women

That's something you couldn't teach

And why would i listen to anything

You decided to preach

Why would i listen

To the lessons of a man

Who Ditched his responsibilities

For a slightly better fam

You see

I don't fuck around

And I do not drink

So unlike you

I have the fucking ability to think

About the way i present myself

And the way others do see me

And of the fucking consequences

Of a standard fuck and flee

But I still sit and wonder

But not for very long

And not in great depth

And I know that I am wrong

To want to come and meet you

Maybe one day I'll have the strength

That's something I'll continue to think through

The man who put my life on the bench

The Three Eyed Crow

On my lonesome again,

Just looking for a friend

Just somebody to help me

Protect and defend

These ideas that I have

about how we should be 

These aren't rules for you

But guidlines for me

To be a better someone

A better someone not a no one

And to discover how it begun

My passion to be awesome

And lift my head up up

Above all the crowd

and scream to all you heroes

I'm a nerd and I'm proud

You see I don't drink

I like to stay home and just read

Pick up the 360 pad

And I'm hoarding nordish mead!

Or I'm chasing down the joker

With a cowl and a cape

This shit is childish to you

But its how I escape

So then I go out

And I try to entertain

That I'm not all that different

That I am kinda the same

As the users and the abusers

and the whores and the losers

And all the many others

that society puts above us

And I wanna scream as I don't fit in

When something cool happens and I'm like "that's for the win!"

And they look at me, like what the frail you saying?

That's right I said frail!

Fuck the scarans, serbations representing

Then I saw you

And you saw me saw you too

And I'm not your type

But you're drunk and ill do

But I won't

Because this ain't how I wanna be

This aint how I wanna meet you

Now the next buy starts in three

Two

One

Two

Three

So I sit on my bed and write this little tune

More as an sos than a song looking for you

Don't get me wrong I would like to get to know you

But you're likely a dick, so on I persue

That's right

I sit on my bed and write this little tune

More as an sos than a song looking for you

Don't get me wrong I would like to get to know you

But you're likely a douche

So now I'm balls deep

In this shallow conversation

And this is the point

That I start to get the impression

That anything I say

Will be met with positive reaction

With the hope that it will result

In filthy bedroom action

So I get my nerd on

And I see how far I can take it

And see how far in this geek out

She can fake "IT"

"IT" being the interest in certain nerdy things

Like did you know robin eventually becomes nightwing?

Did you know Ben Jacob Grimm becomes The Thing?

Would you watch the vhs from the ring?

Did you know that of the north

Rob Stark is the king

And she just sits

With that distant stare

Her head nods in agreement

But I can see she don't care

About all of these things

That mean everything to me

Sweetheart I'm not exactly

The guy you thought me to be

I'm not the kind of guy

Who gets off on cheap fucking

And I'm not the kind of guy

Who enjoys promiscuous sex

As soon as I say these words

She gets to stepping

And I wonder who she

Will aim for next

So I sit back

And I dream I have a Snapple

And I make sure

The seven know that I am thankful

That I got out of here

Without an std

But more importantly

Without you

Go Rapture yourself!

It was at about the age of twenty

When I was pondering the holy trinity

and it all seemed a little ridiculous to me

the thought of one holy entitie

And as the years went on

This girl came along

From across the pond

With a belief system

That was all kinds of wrong

She said

you know what?

for an atheist you're not

What I expect

I said

funny, for an idiot

You're exactly what I expect

You lack common decency

At every single step

And anything you don't agree with

You simply won't respect

You told me that 

All gays are evil

And Colbert is the devil

Obama is a Muslim

There's one god not several

You came from a rib 

Just like every woman did

They tell this shit to little kids

And I find it fucking baffling

And I'm not calling you an idiot

because you've found religion 

I'm calling you an idiot

because it wasn't your decision

your parents had laid the foundation

years of strategic plantation

that homosexuality

is the groundwork of Satan

So go cry me some holy water

And regurgitate the nonsense

That your parents taught ya 

And please don't even begin

To listen to my opinion

Your truth may be your truth

But it ain't what I'm feeling

Now

If you believe in a higher power, the last

Thing I'm going to do is look down on you

I'm happy that you found whatever it is  that helps you get through

The day to day strain

life truly can be tough

So whatever keeps you sane

That's surely enough

Right???

No. It's not enough for you fucking people is it?

You've gotta stamp your feet and make the loudest noise, then people will know that your point is valid.

lie and cover up the molestation of young boys. then have the audacity to rule over who can get married

and don't even fucking start with "it's gods word"

Ok?

Here's a deal

you go find a picture of god

I'll go find a picture of batman

whoever gets back to this point first

wins the argument

GO TIME!

And youve got the flops look at me like I'm a fucking asshat

Because I find it more likely that a nightly  vigilante who fights crime as a Bat 

Is more plausible than your

6 days of creation

and all that

and I could almost hear a pop

as air entered the vacuum

that your body mass occupied

only a nanosecond earlier

before I took the time to remind you

That your religion is a re do

Of a religion that's a re do

Of a religion that's a re do

I could repeat myself for hours

If you really want me to

If that's what I need to do

I'll scream until I turn blue

so i stroke my beard and stare off into the distance

and wonder if history will even stoop to acknowledge your existence

or would you fade away

no memories would stay

or on this world would you

leave a permanent stain

But at the end of the day

All I'm really trying to say

Is

Please don't have children

 

Say Goodbye To These

We've got this cat named kitty

And she doesn't care to much for me

Eventhough I talk to her in Dothraki

And do the things you do

To try and keep a cat healthy

I give her eats

And I buy her treats

And don't go mad when she shits on my sheets

And when she tries to kill me

by tripping up my feets

I'm still like

Awwwwww you so sweet

And she looks at me like

Who the fuck are you

Don't you fucking look at me

Now where the fuck is my food

Open the fridge

Get the pouch

Then deliver food to mouth

And then fuck you I'm out

Imma go and kill a mouse

She kinda looks like toothless from how to train your  dragon

Sad eyes

That hide

In a little ball of fluff

But she'll rip the shit out of your posters

If you don't give her any attention

Then she'll look you in the eye and be like

Fuck your stuff

But I love the shit out of that little kitty

Even though she prefers my housemates to me

And although she'll never invite me

to one of her cat parties

At the end of the day

At least she's not a fucking dog
