The Trouble Is In My Head by Steve Sibra

I have problems because my head is a watermelon.  I can’t see where I am going.  If I try to kiss a girl I get slippery black seeds all over her blouse; so her dad hits me and splits me wide open.

“Stay away from my daughter, you slippery green son of a bitch.”

“Yes, sir,” I think but cannot say.

“And quit dripping red sugar water all over the carpet.”

“It’s not water, sir, it’s juice,” I fail to say.  “Also, you broke my head.”  Somehow he hears me.

“It’s water you toothless prick.”

“Yes, sir,” I don’t say.
