Tired Eyes Tell Tired Thoughts – Written Wednesday 18th October 2017 (Aged 42)

Tired Eyes Tell Tired Thoughts

my fear is,
that this becomes –
a gender debate
but not informed
simply, who do you hate
bullies bully,
and then bully themselves
every action in life
feels like,
thinking back to childhood
nad this is pure definition
from the electronic pages
of a blog or post
your value is devalued
and left by a derelict coast
people could take part
but the shouting
and who shouts the most
sees spectators leaving
huddled into their coats
pipe up but pipe down
a man has had his day
you are one of the clowns my fear is,
no more, do not have your say
and this is what i fear,
let’s move back, let’s move out
tired eyes tell tired thoughts
i know, retreat significant clout
