Friday (The Mofo)


I can’t believe

You had

The balls

To show

Your face

After the way

You slipped

Out of here,

Yet again,

Last week.

You are

One cocky


Of course,

It looks like

You’re getting

A hero’s welcome

From the

Very same people

Whose hearts

You crushed

When you

Abandoned them.

How do you

Do it?

Playing the

Prodigal Son

Over and over,

Like the role

Was created

For you.

Why do they

Still love you

Given your



They act like

They cannot



Without you.

And yet,

You force them

To live

Without you

For almost

An entire week.

Tell me

Your secret.

What magic

Gives you

So much power?

Why must you

Love us

And leave us


How come

You cannot

Commit to

The ones

Who love you

So dearly?

What would

It take

To get you

To settle down,


Where do you

Find love

When you’re not

With us?

Be a man,

Take some


Put down

Some roots.

We obviously

Love you,


You badass

    The best part of Friday is what comes next, so why would I try to get it to stay?
