Reply with quote
My sleeping partner cruelly nudges me out of calm
Eyes open the hunger and thirst rises like a roar.
Going through the motions like a lobotomised lab rat, waiting for the cheese to drop
Chasing the clock, chasing the clock, tick tick tock.

I need to quench this thirst
I know what I need
My circulation is poor, poor from the dead veins of tedium.

On the bus the tree branches like crooked withered old fingers
Point the way, tormenting me, I work to live not the other way around
Tormented by all the exit signs I see
On my way to boredville again.
The thirst is drying me out, drop by drop, minute by minute, second by second.

`Subject (?): life vs. society
That's what I thought, at least.
