Verse 64


We keep going around in circles
hoping for some miracles
but all I see are manacles
going around in circles.

No one said for the water and wine thing
you had to bring your own glass,
so is it all gas and gaiters?

I’m putting a chit’ in
staging a sit in
before I get stuck in
this circle that shuts out
the light.
