They would be cotton candy
But even that is cliché.
The stupid surfer who always sounds high
The musical theater loving many who is always gay
The NASCAR loving woman must be named
Tammie Rae, speak in a southern accent and
have a boyfriend who bought her fake tits playing poker
The girl with the honey colored skin must play
Classical piano and get A’s in Math and Science
And never have a wild night out with friends.
There is a reason clichés are worn out
There’s no surprise in the bottom of the box.
Like that one, who just flew by
Black and yellow and black and yellow
Happy and Laughing and perhaps
Full of luck for you
Or that Irishman who must be a leprechaun
Ready to lead you to the pot of gold
Don’t believe what you see hear smell
Taste touch or actually – believe only that
Don’t believe the bullshit underneath
What other people tell you
You smell so much better
