Scapegoat - Poem by MARINA GIPPS

Unquestioning,
of sleeping herd mentality,
I spread the human better
with that masquarading knife
of a wino's deaf, sad tolerance.

You confidante,
I cannot stand
your pizza, wine, and breath.
The way you blow zeros
brings grey to the sleeping lamb
of my overturned back.
