Yesterday, at church, you were screaming Amen
but under Lorie Harvey’s picture commenting God when?
Your status claims #weatherfortwo,
but your blanket knows you don't have a boo.
Posting on IG, #tablefortwo,
but all the angles point only to your view.
The time you allocate to mingle
is thinner than a slice of pringles
and if being at home was a liquor,
my friend, you are always drunk to stupor.
"I'll rather count rice" is what you say
than to say hi to that crush today.
Yet again, tomorrow
you'll climb Kilimanjaro
to ask God, "Why
a boo won't drop from the sky!"
