ersatz

"mi'lady, i'm afraid i am some bad news."

we are nature's
cruelest hacks. the one
prime mate of your
setbacks. we stack

the decks. your plain
hijack. suck and secrete
off your success. we short
your self-worth on the

nasdaq. we are
the balances
bouncing your checks.
we are useless

appendages of sex. man-
splaining what you get. our feels
lag. balls sack
and jam your

cracks. horny cuddles-
de-sacs. our members too
long and hard to flex. do-little-
for-you douche bags.

as matters of fact we
lack tact. we
are the sound
and fury of assholes

lax. we are designed
just so -
to upset. booby traps.
regifters

of the gab. chokes
on the old gags - that we'll
die before you. not for as
long as we both shall

what? with our failed hearts
we'll depart. duds. leave you
to clean up. through
mud. bad blood.

no partners just cheap
parts. as our rhyme
scheme falls apart. misread.
err. discard.

no ifs no whys -
not with 'at'
but 'buts' - we are
ersatz.
