Twistin Tables - Poem by lyndsay lackadaisical

Running,
Breathing hard,

It's nearly impossible to escape...
They glide,
We trample,
So half-heartedly
Too undecidedly.

us, by each other,
Them all together,
Can we fight through,
What may seem like a meteor shower?

They glare,
We stare,
What's so wrong,
With being strong?

They chased,
We ran,
They yelled,
We flinched.

So over powering,
So full of tyranny.

As we jump,
They stare,
We triumph,
They retreat.

Although it may seem gone,
The war is still raging,
They just don't know it,
We can see it.

They search,
We hide,
They look,
We sense.

It's all coming back,
Nothing can stop it...

He is here,
We are there,
Everywhere to be seen,
Nowhere to be found.

He hunts,
We prey,
He eats,
We drink.

So half-heartedly,
Too undecidedly.
Why too much?
Why so little?

They sit and watch,
He glowers,
We are,
Everywhere to be found,
Nowhere to be seen.

Us, so strong,
Him, so furious,
Them, too afraid.

He is wrath,
We are fugitives.

Just another wild goose chase,
Of cat and mouse,
Cop and robber.

Only the species are switched,
Cat and cop are them,
Mouse and robber are us.

As if it makes,
Any sense at all,
That wee are the drinkers,
They are the eaters.

Corpses are their breakfast,
Animals are their lunch,
While our species-
Their full-course dinner.

They wait,
He goes,
We stay...

Everywhere to be seen,
So half-heartedly,
Nowhere to be found,
Too undecidedly...

They sleep,
He doesn't,
We're silent,
They're not.

We creep,
They crouch,
He crawls.

Everywhere to be found,
So undecidedly,
Nowhere to be seen,
Too half-heartedly.

It runs through their veins,
It stalls in our mouths.
So tasty,
Too irresistible.

How can we stop,
On our rampage of love,
To feed on those,
Of injustice?

Because,

We are here,

He is there...

Everywhere to be undecided,
So to be seen,
Nowhere to be half-hearted,
Too careless to be found.

This is our territory,
Here is where we rule,
For you to leave this world.

Everywhere to be half-hearted,
So to be found
Nowhere to be undecided,
Too much to see

Our gain,

Your loss...
