Stay, The Fuck, At Home
A chill has cooled your cappuccino,
Your latte has lost its foam,
It’s time to leave the coffee shop, my love,
And stay the fuck at home.
The bookshop is all but empty,
Yet you linger over your tome,
Come on, what the hell, what is taking so long?
Time to get your butt back home!
The wind caresses your your hair love,
I can see you reach for your comb,
No we don’t need another trip to the mall,
We need to stay the fuck at home!
Your travel plans have been disrupted,
You can’t get to your travel zone,
I know its a pain but you know where you can stay?
You can stay the fuck at home!
Your friends are all out on the beach hun,
Drinking lager, maybe skimming a stone,
You realise they’re all going to end up quite sick?
That’s why you’re staying the fuck at home,
You have cleared the aisles of loo roll,
Stripped all the shelves right back to the bone,
You can read the the minds of the checkout staff…
Fuck. Off. Home.
They did all they could at the hospital
But now you are lying, as cold as a stone,
If you’d washed your hands and listened,
And stayed the fuck at home.
