Clones to Clonmel

Everyone wants to fit in
except me
I want to be the square peg
in a rounder hole or
the Maypole in June.

I don’t want to be a box that’s ticked
a switch that’s clicked
a brick in the wall,
fitting in
is not the be all and end all
fitting in means bugger all
the standing out
that counts.
