I mean,
Who the Hell
Do they think
They are?
Sittin' under
The cherry
Trees,
Holding a
Hanami party
Like,
Like,
Like
Like a bunch
Of
A bunch
Of…
A bunch
Of high class
Nobodies!
I mean,
Who the
Hell...
Eatin' snacks??
Singin'??
Laughin'??
"We've got
SHARDS
To find!!"
Bunch, Buncha…
Idjits!"
"REMEMBER?
SHARDS?"

I mean,
Look at 'em!
Stuffin'
Their faces,
Playin' games,
Makin' up
Stupid poems-
In honor of a
Buncha stupid
Flowers??
Flowers that
Don't even
Make cherries??
All they do is bloom
And then fall off
When the
Wind blows-
I mean,
Look at Meroku,
Playin' a
Shamisen-
Damn thing's
Outta tune,
But he
Doesn't care-
He's too
Busy
Makin' eyes
At Sango-
She's
BLUSHIN'??
And Kagome?
She's
Passing 'round
All her weird
Food,
With the weird
Tastes
And the weird
Smells-
(Hey, are those
Ramen noodles?)
…and Shipppo,
The greedy
Little pig-
Shippo's
Eatin' himself
Into a stupor,
With Kirara-
Leavin' nothin'
For me-
"Hey!
My mother
Made prettier
Mochi than that!"

…and…

… every Spring,
We'd sit under
The trees,
Her and me.
She always wore
A Spring kimono,
The one with the…
What were they?
Oh, yeah,
Cherry blossoms…
"Hey!
Shut up
Down there!!
I'm tryin' to
Sleep, dammit!"
…cherry blossoms,
She'd hold me
On her lap-
We'd drink tea
And eat mochi,
Mochi with salted
Cherry blossoms-
She'd make 'em
With her own
Hands…
And I'd…
I'd…
I'd always fall
Asleep…
In…
In…
In her lap…
And we always had…
We always had to…
We always had to sit…
Far, far
Away,
Watchin' the others…
(… one time I…
…I…I…
I…wanted to play
With a little girl…
...in a pink kimono…
…her nurse…
…chased me away…)
This is stupid-
"Shut up down
There!!"
Great,
Me yellin' only
Makes 'em
Louder-
Buncha
Ijits!
I mean,
They can't
Even sing!!


"Morons!"


…ummm,
Now what?


…Kagome's…
…gettin' up…
She's comin'
To where I'm
Tryin' to sleep,
On this stupid
Branch,
In this stupid
Cherry tree,
With all it's
Stupid flowers…


She's holdin'
Somethin' up…


…Samurai Snacks?


…For me??


…well…

…ummmm…

"Oh, all right!
I'll come down,
Just this once!"

…bitch…
…grumble…
…snarl…

(I thought
She'd
Never ask.)
