The Story Teller

Craving coruption

Not exactly sheltered

More like wilted

From too much sun

But still, she wants to know more

So she writes stories

About people so poor

A self-abused runner

An Italian painter

A lonely bartender

She'll have them all patened

And shipped to her door

And read them on the floor

While eating a red popcycle

The painter is so comical

The runner is such a disaster

(She secretly loves the bartender...)

And they all live together

Less than happily ever after

Because she imagines what she wants

Whatever she can't be

Goes in her story
