If I had a TiVo for my mind,
you’d probably press “pause”
and “rewind,” and watch all the words
tripping over my tongue at a
more convenient time.

If my life were a video game,
you would likely say it was
lame, and tell me to sell it on ebay
while you shot at “Mother Brain.”

But what do I care if you dote
or won’t, and who cares if you
don’t like my show, cause
if we were ever to co-star,
you’d probably hog the remote.
