And other lies

Coffee is best taken
only in the mornings
in white mugs
And other lies.

You should not
walk around naked
If you dance in public
to the music in your head
maybe you’re not okay
And other lies!

Go to school
get a job and and a partner and babies
make money, so much money
retire young and die filthy rich
And other lies!

You are not important
Maybe my life doesn’t matter
Why should anyone
care about anything?
I am the center
of my world
And other lies!

I just like you
As a friend
And other lies.
