Beer Money Spent on Mangos

Beer Money Spent on Mangos

Just spent my beer money on mangos

Is this the beginning
of a habit forming trend?

Going to fruit shops
Spending my budget money on mangos

Sleepless nights
thinking about apples

Craving the sweet taste of enjoyment

Working in country areas
waiting for seasonal summer varieties

Shaking with the lack of fructose
in my system

Grinding teeth
Nails gripping for the crunch of a pear

As long as this
doesn’t interrupt my social life
or keep me from my daily living

I should be fine
