Do You Wanna Know…?

I’m like a dog chasing cars…
Do you wanna know how I got these scars?
My father… was… a drinker and a fiend
alright.
And one night,
He goes off craaazier than usual;
Mommy/his wife
gets the kitchen knife
to defend herself.
He doesn’t like it –
Not
one
bit.

So… me watching,
He takes a knife to her,
Making her grin… infinite
and laughing while he does it.
He turns to me… and he says,
“Why so serious?”.
He comes at me with the knife…
“WHY SO SERIOUS?!”
Sticks the blade in my mouth…
“Let’s put a SMILE on that FACE!”
has his weapon in place
… and…
why so serious?
