Do Not Eat Cake

Do Not Eat Cake

A Poem by PhoenixDown

If you let too much life and emotion into your lungs, you will soon fill that void reserved for air and the breathing process with other drugs, in search of those first few highs gained when you allowed weakness into your lungs because peers, poets, and hype-people 'round the world shouted so till you believed it so.
Do not eat the cupcake.
Admire the cupcake.
See the cupcake for all the pleasure it can bring,
but do not eat the cupcake.
