Not enough drivel, not enough drive,
this moment, the lover, the life, a billion in five,
enough nonsense to go around,
clickety-clack, whoop de do, yodle-yodle-yodle,
how do I figure this world out?
a stick, a measurment, a tape?
Damn! I am certifiable,
it’s okay, just play safe
and settle down,
don’t worry about meaning and purpose,
just treat life like a frigging circus,
hula-hoops, and trapeze,
dancing monkeys, and show lions,
beasts of the jungle, tamed and neutered,
perhaps enough strength could be mustered?
to break these flimsy chains,
the nine to five, boss’s abuse,
fairness creams, unsolicited advice,
sexism, racism, consumerism,
the invisible fetters,
our freedom shudders,
I know you fear
being free of fear
I will hold your hand
and we will cross the river together.
