Kornbread Dreams of Brighter Days to Come by Alex Carrigan

It’s Dick:35pm somewhere!

Still time to let it free from the cages.

I’m so down to shake a titty.

This is porn. Messy ass

can’t even be a ho in peace.

And I won’t lie and say it’s easy.

We just grade each other’s

nudes to send to trade.

I’m screenshot-ting this.

Let’s see the results tomorrow.

Lmfao I’mma still complain.

Just ate my last chicken tender for the next six months.

I actually used to get vegan before I started drag.

For three years. Got tons of evidence haha.

I wake up every day THANKFUL

I’m practically representing myself

and my best interest for my career.

Feels good to know I’m not being cheated.

Baby, I own my song lol.

This tweet with this song is so dramatic

and it’s what we all need for breakfast.

Never let a bad thing block you

from happiness:

it happens to the best of us.

But if we don’t move on we allow them to win.

Bitch, you on a roll.

That’s how it’s supposed to be!
