I went to get a physical today,
just because I haven’t got one
in years.
And the doctor told me that I
need to stop smoking,
and drink less,
and not get high so much,
or I’ll start doing hard drugs
that will kill me.
I said “ok.”
But going to the doctor’s
makes me nervous,
so when I left the office
I had a cigarette.
It was nice.
Then I went home and smoked
some weed and
drank a beer.
It hit the fucking spot.
