This or That

You can't
do this or that.
You can't punch a window
and expect it not to break.
You can't place a snake
in a metal container,
and have it still be alright.
You can't tell someone a lie,
and cover it up with a lie.
You can't have a dream
that is out of your reach,
and end up crying about it all later.

You need to do the best you can
without messing up a lot.
Can you do this
and not have that?
You can't have things
go your way all the time,
and expect me
to follow suit.
I can't
do this or that for you.
You can't
have this or that.
