Is it ok to be angry as you sit surrounded by your own life?
Fried eggs and bacon every night while you sleep
As you sit in silence because there is nothing else you can do?
Two energy drinks per day and so many cigarettes
Because you have talked yourself out years ago?
Is it ok to be angry as you listen to someone judge you for what you accept?
And the penetrating smell of cigarette buts in your pockets
As if they would respect you more if you spoke with your fists?
And all the spending on all the slot machine video games
Would they? Would it make any difference?
Is it ok to be angry when you explain that your fists don’t make you a man?
And the muse asked how many phrases can you string together
When you explain to someone who should know better?
How many phrases can you string together that mean nothing to
Someone who would be ashamed of you if you took their advice?
