Amanda Palmer

and if i’m forgotten 
i’m perfectly happy with all that has happened
and i still get laughed at but it doesn’t bother me
i’m just so glad to hear laughter around me 

i’ve already spent too much time 
doing things i didn’t want to
so if i want to drink alone dressed like a pirate or
look like a dyke or
wear high heels and lipstick 
hide in a convent 
try to be mayor 
marry a writer
smoke crack and slash tires
make jokes you don’t like 
paint ducks and retire
You can bet your black ass that I’m going to

Do You Swear To Tell The Truth, The Whole Truth And Nothing But The Truth, So Help Your Black Ass?
