She thinks she’s destroyed me
but there’s cocaine on the mirror.
Bags of skunk and pollen
the fridge is full of beer.

She really has it wrong
for I am doing just fine.
I have a lend of barmaids
my drunken evenings shine.

There’s punk rock on the stereo,
new poems upon my floor.
Commitment’s out the window,
promiscuous as a whore.

I’m out every single night
partying away her shame.
She really tried her hardest
she threw me all the blame.

All the shit left with her
I am now completely free.
I’m fucking great and fantastic
the future belongs to me.
