I heard you ate shit at the skate ramp.
Two left feet watering a face plant.
Ah dude, you know that “skate or die” is just a term - 
the latter half is fully independent of the first.
Still I get it you were curbside, sentenced to observe
from the low-risk prison of a sedentary perch.
All jittery. Vault triggering your inner tomboy,
timidly slipping into the military convoy, dang.
Lose trucks aim for the fun box.
Juiced up, cruising over urethane gum drops.
You hit the kicker warp speed yelling “PUNK ROCK!”
Turns out plywood’s not a fan of tough talk - oof.
Cued up a slow-mo heave-ho,
everybody staring at the airborne freak show.
Scraped knees and a very bruised ego.
You’re a good kid just a goofy Knievel.
The good news is it really doesn’t matter.
The other good news is an apple Jolly Rancher.
And it won’t heal wounds but it will heal moods,
and it’s sweet and it’s sour and it’s green and it rules.
Can’t do much so the cut won’t sting
But you can make a couple taste buds go z-z-z-zing
