Did they get to you too?

they haven’t got a fukin clue
about
the things that I’ve had to do
shot through
seen through
been through
and fuck you,

you’re probably thinking,
who’s rattled his cage
who puts the poet in such a rage?
but
it’s just poetry
making things appear to be
what they are not
and I’ve had lots of practice
doing that
