Pulaski day

from by Lily Schaffer

lyrics

took all of my debt to leave you
I was banking on your sweet tooth
now all I'm left with
is a cavity
threats were made, bets were raised
fingers pointed every which way
bills went unpaid
it rotted to the root

I clung on for dear life
when failure was finite
I used up the wishes
on my birthday cakes
you circumvent
the sins you can't repent
and get drunk
on Pulaski day

watching the parade
the streets are a slushy gray
I can feel the cons outweigh
the prose in my chest
seems like ten thousand leagues
more sunken than a fallacy
five anchored winters
in the midwest

I clung on for dear life
when failure was finite
I used up the wishes
on my birthday cakes
you circumvent
the sins you can't repent
and get drunk
on Pulaski day
