The Turquoise Smell

Cause the turquoise doesn’t
Seem to smell like the fresh laundry sheets
Cause the
Red of your locker
Just ain’t red anymore
Cause the newspapers they all
Shit in the diaper
And the fresh water that you bathe in
Only keeps the bubble so long
Cause the rocking chair lost 2 legs
And your Grandmother is a bully when she brags
And you’re gifted the most beautiful
kind of rags
The pot turns hot
And the noodle softens
A sprinkle of cheese
