Empty Box – November 1998

Empty Box

empty box
big fat empty box
it is someone’s birthday
look at what they got
empty box
full of nothing
the care of many human beings
full of my feelings
empty box
big fat stupid box
full of everything and nothing
it has got to mean something
this is my present
heaven sent, i guess
empty box
what a mess
big fat empty box
that is all i get
for caring too much
empty and drained
eyes all empty
big fat box
of nothing, it has no plenty
