Rules - Poem by Gerald Flippinhanger

I break the rules
I break routine
Just as I break my back
I break the law
I break the stereotype
And it is these breaks that keep me going

A million cracks in the sidewalk
A million fractures in the skull
A million shapes in the puzzle
Why do we break these things?

Because rules were made to be broken
Because routines were made to be broken
Backs, on the other hand, should stay in one piece
