No Badge Bears My Name – Written Wednesday 22nd July 2020 (Aged 45)

No Badge Bears My Name

i have lots of ideas
but…
do they… will they…
come true?
will they grow, will they show
but…
i do not know
they used to like me here
once i took a centre stage
once upon a time,
i was all the rage
but eventually,
they just threw me away
what more can i say?
i think i a meant to reflect
somehow take the blame
they used to love me here
but now they cannot utter my name
my picture is up on the wall
but all is left is the frame
i have lots of ideas, but –
no badge actually bears my name
they used to praise me here
now they seem to wonder why i even came
