People Who Hide (Originally Untitled) – Written Decemeber 2000 (Aged 25)

People Who Hide

some people, you know the people
the people who hide
the people who attack
the soft underbelly of insecurity
the knife in your back
the guise of a joke
you are left with a faulty firework
as they chuckle behind the smoke

James Garratt – December 2000
