Oyster and Pearl
A pearl is no blessing if you crack a tooth on it, and a rainy day is no fun if you can't get wet.
You might lead a horse to water, and it just stands there hungry-
or you teach a man to fish when he'd rather have a hot dog.
The world is your oyster so you better suck it up, or if that's not your thing then a little hot sauce on a cracker's the same difference to most.
Hindsight is twenty twenty if you're standing on a chair, and if you put your hand over your eyes you can see my house from here.
If every day is the same then tomorrow might be different.
Is it poetry if the words hang together like scotch tape with a little hair stuck on it?
Is it still a merry-go-round if you aren't having fun, or is it just a go round?
You've got the oyster and the pearl, one's good for now, the other's good forever.
Which one do you want and which one do you get?
Shit cuz, I'll take the oyster-
Just because you saw the sun rise don't mean you get to see it set.
