I’ve already abolished

Abandoned all the lines

that bind members

of this society 

no longer can I see

the rules they follow

I can’t read the print

my ears can’t decipher

the spoken words

fluttering in elusive air

I do not fit neatly

into any of their receptors

I am the cast outsider

I sit in the wings

I wade in eternal sun;

The prancing fancy guns

take aim and fire at me;

the bullets pierce my flesh

but I live

but I live to go on

to continue this assault

on modern blindness

of a society that doesn’t listen

to its bleeding, dying children.
