Feeling the corrosion on your bones, after all
this master of wastage declares itself staid
inside in the searing heat, blowing cigarettes
stenching the corridor like none other
vibrating wake-up calls disposed of carefully.
Loved like none other, winding up those traits
moved along discreetly for paying bitches
hurt by exclusion, typical of these creatures
exiting hurriedly under cover of insult.
Watched incessantly under the eye of the teacher,
paying through the nose to gain an education
frittering it away for sake of entertainment
god forsake you, as we shall too,
never knowing enough to apply, to succeed.
Blackboard work, coming at a worse time
concocting results before redacting at will
impersonal copies sitting on the ledge
being infinitely good a means to another end.
Routinely ignored, spoken to denigrate,
self-administered poison blots out transgressions,
running through corridors to staunch the bleeding
staring at associates through unspectacled eyes
needing a refund for this is essential.
