Common denominator

state a case
any case
and some will pull a face
others will pull a double shift
some will jump ship
slip off the radar
but
they have one thing in common
and that is
they all do something.

I do occasionally do
and
others do too
people like me are only people
like you in a different package,
damaged
repaired
invisibly mended
leaving
only the scars to hide
deep inside.

Being unique is like hunt the thimble
where Jack’s so nimble
he often as not
gets away
and
tomorrow’s just a step in
the right direction.
