A half-carton of ice cream? Really?
Well, you just killed the pancreas there buddy.
I’d like you to know that all of us aren’t nearly
As stuffed and bloated as you are.
This was meant to be a family social event,
But I suppose we can make this all about you.
I’m so sorry to hear your moving back to Ohio
Well, not really, since everyone wants you gone.
You’re makeup looks terrible by the way,
Like teardrops speeding past your eyeliner
Racing down the sides of your cheek.
I bet he saved the ring for the other woman.
So, while your filth ruins my brand new sofa
You can share all your pathetic sob stories
And I can try my best to pretend I care.
Please don’t bother asking how I’ve been
Or pretend to act interested in me at all.
Remember, its not about me, its all about you.


The author's comments:
Please do commentate captain. If you dont like it, please say WHY. I am loving the inputism. I didn't really feel the need to explain this one, I thought it was obvious, unless the definition of obvious has changed in the last 325 years. It would be conducive for you to do your dance at the time which is now.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

And I do so love your username :D

Why did you say 

Well, yeah, but that doesn't mean you're special? This is nothing to do with me!

This poem is funny but cynical and melancholic at the same time. I actually kinda-of like it, reminds me of the work in the The New Yorker magazine. Your poem would fit perfectly in there. :)  You read it? I just like the cartoons, but my mom has a subscription. 

Why do you refer to people as captain and always say merci? Just wondering... :)

Oh no, Boosflash, you don't have to do that. Remember, it's not about me, it's all about you.

Changing my mind and weeping bitterly: "I need that poem!"

Are you an observer of your debts? If so, I'd be delighted.

well in that case, the eels are chewing up my commentary on the poem and its purpose. this is one of the most straight forward poems i've ever written.

Ah, but I sense more behind the eels, they protect a double meaning. The weight of said meaning sinks the ship even further, perhaps even into the deepest canyon on the ocean floor.
