Tim Horton’s

Cost me all my dough

Cream cheese and bagel

That I bought from Tim Horton’s


That muthafucka!

Can’t live with or without him

Get a life, grow up

(Lawd, you make me bawl!)


I am quiet rage

Anger is my best weapon

I cannot be stopped


So clear, so vivid

It has taken me somehow

To a place of hope
