A Stupid Tree Frog Daughter
You're an unemployable lazy little shit.
Stop wasting time, be grateful
for what you have, don't be so negative.
the refrain batters through my skull
in sharp red sparks of strident sound.
Now I have legs and a voice I'll damn well sing
and leave you to measure my distance from you
by its chirrup, chirrup until it dies away utterly
to silence steelier than any bird's beak or wasp's sting.
