Baby Face Chinaski
I don’t have time for your shit,
you post-pubescent misanthrope.
Once upon a time,
when your ironic alter-ego roamed the streets,
and haunted the bars of dirty L.A.
like a piss-stained ghost,
you were yet a regret in your
bitch of a mother’s misbegotten womb.
Although I don’t think I blame her
for how you turned out,
given how you beg for the teat
in every Facebook post of yours
I have ever read.
Maybe I’ll listen to you
when you can grow a mustache
thicker than a row of pubes.
I will simply shake my head,
and comment less and less,
because the only two things you are listening to
in these last days of your misspent youth
are your own mewling laments of growing up too fast,
and the hollow sympathies of girls your own age,
who would sooner court the clap
than give you what you think will make it all better
for just one night,
before the sun rises in your sunken child-eyes,
and you post online once more.
