New Lyrics Written At The Supersuckers & Dirty Mugs Show

Last week while I waited for The Supersuckers and The Dirty Mugs show at The Shrine to start I got an idea and started writing it down on the envelope my ticket was mailed to me in. It was the only paper that I had on me at the time. Unlike the Alejandro Escovedo show, this time I made sure that my new lyrics/poem were not lost. Below is the scan of said new lyrics in all their roughness:


After I took a look at them I made a pass at the top page and it changed a bit. Some of the stuff on the backside was not connected and came out later so I'll hang onto those scraps, you never know when they'll come in handy. Below you'll see the finished (for now) product.
working man

present me with questions
none of which I like
pronounce the company motto
invoked with a straight face
I know that your way or the highway
doesn’t coincide with my way
you like my results but
say my methods gotta change
haven’t you ever heard
don’t fix what ain’t broken
just another example of dumbing
it down to the lowest common denominator
everybody is on even footing around here
no child’s been left behind
appearances are all that matter
what if I don’t want my participation trophy?
