The World Vs. Me


I feel soulless
I feel apathetic
I feel like talking to myself
though no one
is around

Is this a poem?
Typing down how I feel
like a blank page
and all

Should I talk about
how I feel like a victim
of propaganda?

Mass media is out
to destroy me
but no one believes it

I guess I'll declare war
from the dimly lit depths
of my seclusion
equipped with only
a battle plan
and a sharpened
sarcastic tongue

There was a boy once
I knew him well
but he was executed
point blank
and told
'You have no place
in this world,
you pussy.'

So now
as a broken man
you can bet your ass
I'll give them hell

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
