Day 348 – Multitudes

they say we all contain multitudes
but i don’t want to show mine to you
you might contain multitudes too
but somehow i don’t think you do

you aren’t large, just nervous
and civility’s a bore
it ain’t your job to win
but you’re so busy keeping score

and am i somehow back to this
rumbling down this same old street
bellyaching people
i wish i’d never had to meet

protecting property

‘cuz when they smile at me

it looks like fire

and it feels like suicide
