Diminishing Man - Poem by George BernardBloodyShaw

I can do it myself.....

One doesn't need outside power
To this old git who used to be
A tower
Of strength.

I'm doing it myself,
Knocking myself to pieces.

I don't need an outside faction
To turn me into a fraction
Of my former self.....

I can do it myself!
