Third Person Pep Talk Backfire

Ya win some.

Ya lose some.

Ya get some.

You’re lonesome.

Repeat the cycle till your engine stops.

You fashion

Your passion 

And ration

Your action.

You keep lyin’ 

Your head is gonna pop.

You could ask me but you don’t.

The tasks be stuff you won’t 

Touch with 


Gloves and a


Gun so, yeah, you

Better run
If you know

What’s good…

Wait a minute,

What’s good?

What’s best for you?

You’ve never been one for 

Reward so

I’m done with the 

You gotta

Take care 


You have no 


So I won’t waste time
