When Will I Learn? – Written Saturday 5th March 2004 (Aged 29)

When Will I Learn?

i got so tired
and i got run down
it is a feckless world
and it dragged me around
i ran into the ward
and claimed i was sick
but they said i was bored
i guess my face does not fit
i leap frogged desire
and landed in one piece
i squeezed out emotions
which were left in a heap
i got tired
and watched the cooker burn
the pressure and the steam
when will i learn?
