Hotseat

Please don’t put me on a pedestal.

I’m not made of clay
nor beaten from metal.
I’m not hewn out of rock
nor cloth stuffed with hay.

Just a structure of flesh
& blood & bones,
I come with all human frailties
just as windows software
comes bundled with
every Pentium PC.

Just like a million others
tho’ I like to think
of myself as
slightly different,
you see?

  1. I could feel the fence
    Guess its a wrong way
    Now I'm closer to it
    It showed me new way
