PROMPT — Who am I today?

Chris got out of jail near Copenhagen and there is no money

for colorful powder from Tim XX.

There was only a guy with a prosthesis and dirty jeans

standing at the gate. He must survive at least a few minutes

this complicated freedom.

He would love to hit his girlfriend's lover

in the hot heart.

But there's no money for colorful powder from Tim XX.

He lost his dog and two weirdos who pretended to be his


He doesn't care about the moon today. And falling on people’s

skulls meteorites…

These are just fairy tales invented by sellers of expensive cars.

Let the probation officer and therapists fall asleep.

He explained his thoughts under a dark cell.

He must calmly swallow the cool air of the island.

He put the switchblade away in a safe place…

Where did the boys from Amager Street go?

There is no money for colorful powder

from Tim XX.
