Harsh Words To Counter Ironic Accusations - Poem by Nick Jankowski


You come to me
with your sickening
sanctimonious smile
pasted on your face
You try to lecture me,
accusing me of actions
that superlatively
decribe your own
You're in no position
to try and make me feel


I've tried so hard
to hold my breath-
my face turning blue
I've tried so hard
to bite my tounge-
it's bleeding now

It's my turn to talk...
...and it all goes quiet
before a whisper turns into
a scream
