Black Hole

that’s it! i have had enough! i’ll show my mom and dad who’s boss
they’re way too strict and obsolete – who do they think they are
they have no right to choose my friends or tell me what to do
no rock music? no booze? no cigarettes? no sex? no way!
the parties, the games, the dope, the guys, the sex,
they get what they want and i get what’s theirs
the fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, it never ends
billy has the weed, rob has money
don has a t-bird, mike has a jag
no control – help! i can’t stop
i pick up others at parties
no limits – no curfew
no rules. just a trip
to the doctor
every three
months

TBT, January 14, 2002 ~ We took in a young woman to get her out of a bad situation. I’m very concerned about her and the “occupational hazards” of her lifestyle, but sadly she isn’t ready to let go.
