Everyday I Crawl – Written Between Tuesday 15th February 1994 and November 1994 (Aged 18/19)

Everyday I Crawl

everyday i crawl
just to kiss the toes
of a non personality in a suit
who is the pied piper
with their, ‘beck and call flute’
and i say yes to everything
because that,
is the way that society is
it humiliates you,
it stands on you,
it tells you,
that you are not worth it
but i will be okay
i will beg to stay and follow

James Garratt – 1994
