Catch-22 - Poem by Kelvin Rush

CATCH-22 no way out
Ask so many questions still in so much doubt
Knowing there's a wonder somewhere deep inside
But cannot open up the door and cannot stay outside.

CATCH-22 swallow the bitter pill
My days are numbered time is short
I'm afraid I'm terminally ill
If I tell my mum it would break her heart
And she's not well herself
Should I spill the beans and create more pain
Should I keep it to myself.

CATCH-22 rotten to the core
I hate myself for being corrupt
But I'm always wanting more
The longer it goes on, the worse it makes me feel
The toss of a coin, I ignore the result
There's no end to this ordeal.

CATCH-22 I'd like to open up
I'm vulnerable shy and weak
Please come and take a look
I really want to try and change but I don't know if I can
At times I feel so alone and strange
But I like the way I am.

CATCH-22 please cleanse my mind
I can't remember who I am, my memory is in decline
I desperately need to relive my past
But I cannot find the door
I know there's pain, guilt and shame
But I don't know who it's for.

CATCH-22 I need to earn to eat
If I confront my cheating boss
I may end up on the street
I know his wife and his eldest son
They have a right to know
But then again it's none of my business
Should I tell or let it go.

CATCH-22 political bluffer
Should I vote for the one who saves me money
Knowing that others will suffer
If I choose another candidate then I will go without
Maybe I'll abstain, things may stay the same
I'm still in so much doubt.

CATCH-22 I haven't got a clue!
