    I almost made a huge mistake.
    Marley’s words are not dead,
    what the wise man said, to guide work
    in the right direction,
    “you must first take care of head”.

    Great. That never explained
    the Mountain Dew Code Red, the Frito-Lays,
    The unmade bed for days
    or couch-lock, lazy half-dazed
    slouch in posture like a bag of rocks.

    Dumb as a clock. Attention span
    all soft, laughing my ass off
    while Bob turns in his coffin
    wondering how often some jagoff
    with a stoner’s cough will be so bold

    to assume he ever meant it for when we
    Clear heads in school.

    I almost made a huge mistake by not taking a chance. I don’t know where I would be or what I would be like if it wasn’t for that chance.
