La dee frickin da, by Alfonso Mango

la dee frickin da
the refrigerator done did died
the ex-wife remains the ex-wife
i haven’t seen the carpet since christmas
and i haven’t celebrated christmas since jesus
and i haven’t praised jesus since grade school
gum under the pews
thinkin bout magazines
thinkin bout fishnets
thinkin bout how slow time creeps along
like a peg leg stalker
but that’s all then
this is now

the era of ladeefrickinda

where you can share your opinion
like a thanksgiving turkey
but all that’s gonna come of it
is it gets eaten up
and maybe you knock a fucker out
for an hour or two


trashbag eyes arms like dead snakes
children running through the superfund playground
radiating less like monroe and more like a death plant
and someday they too will grow up
to live the life
maybe in this dirtbag apartment
moldy gym socks and unopened letterbox
