Hot to the Touch – Written Wednesday 31st October 2012 (Aged 37)

Hot to the Touch

i want more than this
much more
inept individuals
crafting my door
lies and more lies
parents who do not parent
and always hide
work places of faces
who can barely tie their laces
and all around
is bullshit and greed
and the lack lustre
have too many reasons to feed
my tolerance has tolerated
far too much,
the frustration is palatable
and hot to the touch
my common sense
is less come and quite rare
and you clever my clever
you will see it can go spare
but even i, even i feel
and i feel this dross
all this inspiration missed
in life, i want more
much more than this
