I Crave Attention (And Lots Of It)

I Crave Attention (And Lots Of It)

A Poem by J. R.

A poem about self harm in the name of attention, and why people do such a thing

I'm gonna hammer a nail with my face
I'm gonna stick my wang in a fireplace
I'm gonna chow down on broken glass
I hope the paramedics will save my a*s

I'm gonna stand naked in the driven snow
I'm gonna stick my hand in a badger burrow
Whatever draws attention, I'll gladly do
Nothing is too stupid or taboo

I'm gonna start shaving with a lawnmower blade
I'm gonna pound my face with a digging spade
I'm gonna lay down in a busy city street
I'm gonna wear a yarmulke to a Neo-Nazi meet

I'm gonna practice cunnilingus on a blender
I'm gonna go skiing on a drunken bender
I'm gonna circumcise myself with a butterfly knife
I'm gonna get attention by endangering my life

This is so funny but when you think about it is actually alarming that Americans do something close to this.

I didn't know Sarah Palin wrote poetry.
