10,000 Spoons: Isn’t it ironic?


…When all you need is a knife might not be ironic, but it is unfortunate. Add your own verse, stanza, or story of badly-timed annoyance to Alanis Morissette’s classic:


When you’ve made the cut,

But then you’re hurt,

by a monster unloosed,

set up by the ‘doozed’

And isn’t it ironic… don’t you think

It’s like wishing for wine,

That arrives with a whine,

And the good advice you gave yourself,

You’re prevented from taking,

Because, well, it’s you! How can you be right now?

And isn’t it ironic… don’t you think

A single blemish, a single mar,

And every step’s made torture,

Because, well, how can you,

be trusted now?

No matter how much you scream,

I’m wiser now!

And you scream….

And isn’t it ironic… don’t you think

That you’d listen to me,

But not through me,

You’d do what I say,

But not if you hear me say it….

And isn’t it so bloody ironic… don’t you think

And so you think,

What the hell,

Let’s just go back,

To giving a damn,

You’d rather I be the same,

rather than sane!

Hell, isn’t it ironic… don’t you think
