Stymied, stopped, abused and rocked.
Hopes and dreams were just a crock.
Thought that I was in the groove,
celebrated way too soon.
Future perfect turned past tense,
been dismissed, no recompense.
No prize of consolation,
seems I’m stopped before begun.
Languish anguish immature;
disappointment not inured.
Need to break stress of routine
‘fore all flesh gone from my knees.
Squeaky wheel that gets the grease
will this rat ever find peace?
Stupid is as stupid does,
I’m too dumb to rise above.
Rise above and just slip out;
hamster wheel’s making me shout.
Stupid cage has simple latch
thumbs opposing can dispatch.
Dispatch me from indenture;
door’s wide open? I don’t stir.
