Brochure

Take my picture
And put me in the brochure
My cousin’s in the Navy
She brought me an afghan
If you got a minute
I’ll show you my tattoos
This one’s a hedgehog
And here I got a turtle with rockets

Take my picture
And put me in the brochure
I don’t have cancer
But I came from an unwed mother
She said not to fuss
Our pool held no water
She said don’t steal
I told her to stop giving me reason

Take my picture
And put me in the brochure
My brother’s a deadbeat
He’s tired from working
If you don’t mind stopping
I’ll show you my dog’s puppies
They were born with no eyes
Just fur covered sockets
I live in a dream
But you’re too awake to notice

Take my picture
And put me in the brochure
Because you’ll never slow down
Not enough to really see me
You’ll just look at the snapshot
On the way to get a fancy coffee
And under your breath
You’ll thank God you’re not me

So take my big picture
And stick it in your brochure
