tell the paper to go to hell

he screams

keep it simple baby
don’t let the words
get in the way
of
a good story

don’t let the plot line thicken
there
shouldn’t be a
plot in the first place
just
a good story

don’t
let the facts get in the way
of
a
good story
just tell it like it is
it’s the theme and the
morals
that count
not the lesson

don’t let the words get in the way

and don’t forget to say
i’m finished,

never use those other
2
words,

because baby,
it’s never the end
only the beginning or the middle.

now,
how you gonna end this one
baby?
