I Live in a Bubble

Piddle in the middle
of the floor
nobody's around
to clean it up 
I gotta find a couch corner
to remodel
with the throttle on full 
I'm a jungle bundle
Roughin’ up anybody
Soft or hard
wood or yarn
make it smelly
if it lives or lived
It belongs in my belly
tell me that I can't sniff butts
what's the point
Of waking up?

I live in a bubble

Guard the house
with all my might 
I might just try 
to rip the top off 
the can with the turkey
and a tasty treaty meat buffet 
how tantalizing

Cranberry gravy 
and stuffing 
just in time for
late thanksgiving
with a hair pin turn I
Flavor frenzy
and drag it down with me

I live in a bubble

Just like things
You find in a puddle
I'm a living breathing
Piece of the puzzle 
In the rubble after
the pending disaster
Survival makes me faster
spoils of war 
restore my wings
history gets blistering
Throw it away
Hole in the wall
Head in the ground
to hell with it all

I live in a bubble
