IS IT WORTH IT? AFTER THEY’VE TOLD YOU: “YOU’RE HUMAN?”i

“IT’S WORTH IT.” a poem, a. k. a., “So, Try To Keep The Faith AND DANCE.” FRIDAY, 10/18/2019

“I got you Babe” 🀩

& THEN “THEY” PROCEEDED TO TELL YOU,

ALL THE “TERRIBLE” THINGS THAT ARE LOOMIN’,

LIKE: DISEASE, OLD AGE, DEATH, TAXES&HEARTBREAK?

OVERWEIGHT, UNDERWEIGHT [EATING DISORDERS APLENTY],

& GIVE&TAKE.

WHY ARE YOU HERE? WE DON’T KNOW WHY;

WHY EVERY OTHER DAY DO YOU HAVE TO BREAK DOWN & CRY?

IS “BEING HUMAN” WHAT IT’S CRACKED UP TO BE?

(I DON’T E V E N KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS, UNFORTUNATELY.)

I WANNA DO GOOD, BUT I’M STOPPED ON EVERY SIDE,

AND SOMETIMES I TELL THE TRUTH, & A JURY OF MY PEERS,

SAYS (THAT) I’VE LIED.

IS IT WORTH IT? WELL, AS THE TITLE SUGGESTS,

IT IS, OR IT MIGHT BE, PERHAPS, IF WE JUST STOP POUNDING OUR CHESTS,

ANNOUNCING OUR (SUPPOSED) SUPERIORITY, OF INTELLECT OR BRAWN,

AND ADMIT WE ARE LOST & SEEM TO BE SOMEBODY’S “PAWN.”

“SHEEP, RULED BY WOLVES, OWNED BY PIGS.” AND OUR GROVES,

HAVE BEEN CONFISCATED BY “THE STATE” & A LARGE “GANG” ROVES,

THE CITY STREET, SO IS IT EVEN SAFE TO GO FOR A WALK TONIGHT?

I DON’T KNOW; SO, I GUESS I’LL JUST WAIT FOR THE MORNING LIGHT,

AND TOUCH MY LOVER THERE ON THE SHOULDER LIKE THAT,

AND GAZE INTO THE SWEETEST EYES AND, MAYBE, GET TO PAT,

MY LOVER ON THE FANNY AND LAUGH & GIGGLE OVER TEA:

THAT IS WHY IT MIGHT BE WORTH IT TO BE HUMAN: YOU & ME,

AGAINST “THE WORLD,” AND THE WORLD DOESN’T STAND A CHANCE,

‘CAUSE I GOT YOU, BABE; AND YOU REALLY KNOW HOW TO DANCE.

FIN <3
