Screw the Buttons


What’s the right order?
I have all the equipment
buttons lined up in neat rows
right the fuck in front of me
But after wrenching struggles
and being worn down
by the opposite of accolades
from subpar humans
I’m stuck on something
as simple as a sequence!
No self help books necessary
no manuals for this job
When I chose to fly under the radar
I knew I’d mostly be on my own
but shit! this is ridiculous
Barely making sense to myself
almost speaking in code
the instructions were simple
but my detail-oriented brain
got in the way again
and I missed the big picture
So these buttons should be a piece of cake
if only I could remember
I’m so screwed
