On The Fritz

Another unnecessary App
another dollar drops
into the billionaire abyss
my rational is a lack of sleep
too many nightmares
love luster screw-ball mistakes
and even though I can give advice
all holy and righteous
my ability to heed my own words
is zero to less than
so winner or loser
lover or friend
falling between the cracks
the ups and downs are a bore
and I grow weary of the day to day
when the guy upstairs 4th floor asshole
continues to send irritating messages
or stomps on the floor
a subtle threat…I suppose
but the volume button
on my surround sound
extremo stereo hook-up
is on the fritz
