Carefully Placed Quotes

Carefully Placed Quotes

your pretence must be the best line of defence
i have grown sick
of life on a river boat barge
your carefully placed quotes
with all the finesse of a cavalry charge
i have watched the drip feed medication
of a second time around situation
poison my very thoughts
your sepia tinge
leads me to complain and whinge
as i realise the truth is out on the fringe
and, how we like to binge
on the lives others pretend to live
like a compassionate state
that has forgotten to give
and protects everything on its plate
your pretence causes such great offence
as i watch the worker ants,
muscle their way forwards
a life of wine is just fine but clearly,
everyone is thoroughly bored
