Big depression sale! now 50% off


Sunday was supermarket day for mom and dad.

They would get home with depression on their faces

And packed in all kinds of innovative ways.


Depression in kleneex, canned depression,

Frozen 500 calorie fat-free packs for the depressed and fat.

Dehydrated depression instant soup with shrimp, just add water.

Sad popcorn, just stick it in the microwave and hear your life make a “pop”.


Sunday was depression sale day it seemed.

All day long 2×1, or something big.

My parents would fill their cart, all excited.

Then they would take it all home.

Put sadness in our fridges,

Wash our sheets with it, spray it all over the air in apple scented air.


And I would escape to the outside and run in the dirt.

Touch the dirt, eat the dirt, feel it crunching between my teeth.

Dirt under my nails, dirt inside my lungs when I breathed.

It was all i could afford, it was sweeter, it was mine.


They would yell my mom and dad, seeming strangers from afar

“Come play inside! Look all we got!”

Like two ogres holding a clown mask in front of them to fool me.

But i wouldn’t go back until they’d drag me.

Kids are smart

Kids don’t like bad mood frosted cake

Don’t drink someone else’s bad decision lemonade.


Kids don’t love depression scented toys.

      1. The Punchy Lands are an amazing escape place, i might use it every once in a while if i’m invited 🙂
        Well i didn’t back then, but i moved to a bigger city as soon as i could and then i moved continents, and i think my relationship with my family is better when there is an ocean between us.
