I wrote this for you a couple of internet minutes ago. It was supposed to be part of my stand up routine, but it came out all wrong. ..
Now I’m not sure if it’s a poem, a song, a puzzle, a joke, a love letter or a suicide note, but I’m hoping at the end of it, you could tell me. I called it I LIKE YOU. I think I was channeling this guy when I wrote it…
I like you becos you laff
It means you see the good in people
Even if you not laffin now, you’ll be laffin soon don’t worry
Some don’t laff to feel like celebrity
Well, celebrity laff the most
Or at least they should be.
I would give you my number
But it fall inside water
not the phone, the number fall inside water
The place I wrote it fall inside water—
I don’t know my own number.
I’d ask the people that call me but…
I don’t want to look stoopid ya know?
But at least a person phone fallin in water
Is better than person phone fallin on ground..
Because water liquid, floor is solid, liquid softer—
I know maths
We use technology
for funniest things
before phone we use mail letters
now we use phone to flash & pingu
but if you send blank letter to person,
they call ya crazy, ya know?
But now there’s call me back—
But if I send letter to person..
and letter says “send me letter”
they call ya foulish, ya know?
In my country,
They flash person with land line
that like posting letter wit no address,
but we developing country still
your country develop
but all country still developing tho
Why ya stop?
We third world country still
You first world.
we have three world
Why you have only one, ya know?
You laff yet?
Where your laff emoji?
But if you send letter—
With draw smiley face on top
They call ya stalker, ya know?
