ought a be a law

now I am forced to get a shot that makes my knees wobbly.
and forced to get erratic's
post office cheat Bobby's
all I wanted was a chance to have visiters at
me and my mothers house
not to get killed off
from a proper spouse
content to live with me in my mothers care too
instead of forced drinks and forced mail fraud
never telling what they did do
wrong it was to think they'ed tell the truth
peek at you uno cards
was still innocent fun mischiefs in the familys group
not what opening my mail thought
suffering kids isn't what I cost
great are the forces that visited me at my mothers house of
then what happened to their greatness
without their problems noticed where they was
seeking to make them out
