Survival of the Filthiest

In a pumpkin patch I was born -- I ate peanut shells and chain-link fences -- Roadkill with a gasoline chaser -- The local dump was my savior -- Dill pickle daydream -- Poison ivy became my only friend -- We'd go down the slide together and get our pants wet -- Hanging upside down from the monkeybars I saw my first love -- A garbage can with a rotting shoe and fish head sticking out

Didn't eat fast food until I was ten -- After devouring the meal I ate the wrapper and cup -- Never had a milkshake, but enjoyed sprinklers on summer days -- Always wanted steak, usually settled for dog -- Had dreams of becoming a mechanic -- Ended up having to blow one to get change for the bus -- Couldn't afford a TV -- Watched broken glass and rocks in deserted alleys -- Once found a dollar -- Bought a pack of gum and hope
