Look to the right of the guy who votes and chases money,
wearing the hottest name brands nervously,
desperate to impress, ignoring the scenery,

that you are going to make it far,
that everyone around you thinks you rule,
that next to you, the rest of us are fools,
that when the dawn shows up it does so to
add light and warmth specifically for you,
whereby the rest of us are only here
to cater to your needs and sometimes cheer?

So, you think you suck at life and no one cares
and that you may as well just be your stairs
for all the world notices, and that if in your bed
tonight when you lie down to watch the slideshows in your head
you fall into that deepest sleep that draws the endless dream
that nothing would be left on earth to say it heard you scream?

Are you both or neither or something else altogether,
and are you destined to stay that way forever?


The book continues with What's That Lovely Smell In Here?. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.
