Fall And Replace

Bits and pieces of this thing keep falling off

I try to replace them, but never with much success

This is the game

Fall off, will replace

Sounds to me

A little like our government

Insults And Love

Just simple sarcasm

Flowing from your mouth

And shot at me with intense direction

Insults and love

What a combination

Pampering and distrust

Heavy is the head

And sleep comes hard to find

A twisting of morals

Giving way to obscure thoughts of dismissal

After all, why not run?

What’s the point of staying?

Like a boxer who should go down

Pride, is a very stable antagonist

Opposed in feeling, principle, and self-sufficiency
