Lollipops

He was sweet like a lollipop

a cotton candy dum dum.

Reminding me of a simpler time when I got my hair cut at Great clips

because I didn’t care about my hair.

They would give you a dum dum lollipop

for being good and returning to the salon.

Then I started to care about my hair

I started caring about what I wanted in life.

And even though he was sweet,

He hurt my teeth.

I could only take so much,

before I got sick.
