Washington State

In Washington state there are a lot of trees.
There are also a lot of blackberry plants.
And if you get down on your knees
You might spot an army of killer ants.

It’s a good thing you only sleep at night.
‘Cause if you slept in the middle of the day
They’d crawl into your bed and take a bite
And suck your blood until you turned gray.

You see, at night, they go to bed too.
They have sweet dreams of eating flesh.
But during the day, they hunt for you
And try to find you crisp and fresh.

So next time you think about being lazy
And taking a nap instead of working hard
Think of the ants that are driven crazy
By the smell of your blood from your backyard.


A note I found in a drawer.
The Extra Lens and Adultery.
Books are beautiful.
Ira Glass made me feel better about things.
Something that happened yesterday.
