When the gas comes I fall asleep

I found out later

that it's the same Valium

gas Russian soldiers used

on the Chechen terrorists

When I wake up my hair has been cut

I don't like the style really

But they change my clothes

and clean the place up

Grateful bastards




It's too spicy

I don't want spinach You eat it

I won't eat spinach

I don't want to eat spinach
