The Devil of Self Interest – Written Sunday 19th July 2020 (Aged 45)

The Devil of Self Interest

i am slightly undone here
as rain
it soaks my fear
i lost that job several months ago
in october snow
when i was on a downlow
this is how we treat people
to feel so complete
and be our best
tied to the whore of ambition
and the devil of self interest

i am slightly undone here
as my mind
soaks my tears
i was always going to be a fool
living in a box of tools
when i was on a downlow
and clinging dreams fudged the rules
to feel so complete
and be our best
tied to the whore of aspiration
and the devil of self interest
