Perhaps you’re only seeing what it is they want you too,
which is you
looking at you through a viewfinder wishing it was a rangefinder,
thinking it would be kinder to finish it
but wishing it doesn’t work well.
I could be in the driving seat
beating the drum
making those wheels hum
and the engine purr
‘could be’ isn’t fair either.
They get a medal for doing fuk all
we get fuk all for doing fuk all
there is no justice
it’s just us
for our lives.
