Happy V.D. ... as it were

O.K., so I got inspired by eris's little behind-the-cut anti-valentines poem ... actually, this song had bubbled up in my head of its own volition the other day through a very odd set of free-associations ... Daughter #1 was going through kleenex like crazy and I suddenly thought "Fountain Of Boogers"/"Fountain Of Sorrow" and thought I really needed to re-write said sad song to express vast amounts of snot ... however it suddenly occurred to me that I really didn't know "Fountain Of Sorrow" but somehow the title had suggested itself ... then the context started to fill in as other lyrics drifted up to the surface in my mind ...
          yes i wish i was as mellow
          as for instance jackson browne
          but "fountain of sorrow" my ass
          motherfucker
...
and I realized that my brain was playing back the Tonio K song "H-A-T-R-E-D" to me, from his classic 1978 album Life in the Foodchain!

Well, since eris can post an "anti-valentines" poem, so can I (thanks to Google and the folks at this page) ... posted behind a cut tag for the more sensitive readers of this space, and the fact that this does NOT reflect any current personal sentiment (unlike the year it came out, where it was a very to-the-point tune for me!) only a bit of wistful recall ...



H-A-T-R-E-D by Tonio K.

now i know it's not unusual
it's nothing so unique
there's probably hundreds of wonderful love affairs
that go bad in this town every week
but all of them others
them sad-hearted lovers
could cry in their beer, what the hey
it didn't concern me
was none of my business
i never had nothin' to say
but suddenly darlin'
the table has turned
you have left me for somebody new
and now it's hard to express
the resentment i feel
for the years that i've wasted on you

but let me put this another way....ok?

i'm full of H-A-T-R-E-D
i'm bitter and malign
you've got me
p-i-s-s-e-d off
i'm angry most of the time
why don't you
g-o t-o h-e-double"l"
you tramp
you philandering bitch
i'm going to
k-i-l-l one of us baby
give me time and i'll decide on which

and i know i'm acting immature
i'm acting like a child
i should display some self-control
instead of going wild like this
and i do wish i could accept all this
as simply "life" which includes pain
and act upon the actual fact
that nobody's to blame

yes i wish i was as mellow
as for instance jackson browne
but "fountain of sorrow" my ass
motherfucker
i hope you wind up in the ground

i'm so full of h-a-t-r-e-d
i'm bitter and malign
you've got me
p-i-s-s-e-d off
i'm angry most of the time
why don't you
g-o t-o h-e-double"l"
you tramp
you philandering bitch
i'm going to
k-i-l-l one of us baby
when i'm sober i'll decide on which

i'm so full of h-a-t-r-e-d
i'm bitter and malign
you've got me
p-i-s-s-e-d off
i'm angry most of the time
why don't you
g-o t-o h-e-double"l"
you tramp
you pig
i'm going to
k-i-l-l one of us baby
give me time and i'll decide on which

(chorus several times more, with amusingly violent variations)

but then again, maybe with the proper counseling, we can work this out
