Fire damage

You have to remember
that some members of a team
have star status,
they’re
not like us
they don’t lose out,
we
are the fractured
supposedly inured
to loss and pain.

It’s the same over and
once more and
what’s more there’s
no relief.

It is my belief that everyone
should be treated like they’re
the only one.

But we churn out the turn out who
turn out and in turn we never learn
so
who’s cheating who in the
who’s what and if you don’t
understand it
you’ve
not been
listening.

And that’s nothing new
you
never do
until the fat hits the pan
oh yes
then you’re the man
the big five zero
the come and see me and I’ll
be your hero

and that’s a big if
if not a bigger ask.
