Who said........This is poetry?
Who said........That the words are free?
Who said........This is you and me, not us or we?
Tell me! ! !
Who said.....Better safe than sorry?
Who said.....This is my life story?
Who said.....Don't you hurry, don't you worry?
Tell me the story! ! !
Who said....Things I say have been said before?
Well they can just walk right out the door
Who said...Let me say no more?
Who said....She is just a friend?
Who said....Please don't pretend?

Anguished by the violent seas,
Flung between rocks and parents,
Longing for a friend that sees.
Cold; Lost and Alone!
Disturbed and annoyed by the constant qurstions,
Tormented by his face with little comfort.
The constant honking and hammering, a minds conjestion,
Overwhelmed by the noise of information and transport.
