Life’s Manual

This is one book I have always wanted to buy.
I need just a copy of that book which teaches us how to live.
That perfect formula which works.
That almighty algorithm through which one can navigate your life.
You seem to have all the answers always.
Tell me where I can buy a copy of life’s manual.

Is it not about time you teach me how to celebrate?
I need you to tell me what and what not to post on my birthday.
Teach me what I should respond to on social media.
You seem to have life’s finest hacks.
Your claims are always those you can back up.
Tell me where I can buy a copy of life’s manual.

I need to know what’s cheesy or not.
It’s time you tell me how to mourn.
You seem to have mastered living.
I hope it’s not time for you to die yet.
You teach everyone how to show maturity.
Master, please tell me where I can purchase life’s manual.

I’m the one being criticized and shamed.
But you are the one telling how I should react.
Thank you Big Brother.
All is well in your camp, so you look out for others.
I don’t need to stress you next time around.
Master, please tell me where I can purchase life’s manual.
