Picking at the wound from before
Scraping the scabs off unhealed sores
Fingernail filth mingles with blood
Making for a red colored mud
New skin around the edge starting repair
Begins to bleed slowly from the new tear
One scab left hanging by newly grown skin
Quick rip by the teeth it’s a salty raisin
Tonguing the wound till it stops bleeding
Starting the process over just like seeding
Collecting the raisins for the tin can
Putting them down the girl’s shirts is the plan

“New skin around the edge starting repair” is a great line! Hilarious and visual.
I recall doing all of that as a kid – except dropping it down a girl’s shirt 🙂
You’re so interesting! I don’t believe I have read through anything
like that before. So great to find someone with a few genuine thoughts on this
topic. Really.. thank you for starting this up. This website is one thing
that is required on the web, someone with a little originality!
Thanks for the comments. It’s refreshing for the recognition.
