Vice

the world
does not give
second chances
to recovering alcoholics
and raging whores
or is that
raging alcoholics
and recovering whores
maybe it is
alcoholics
enraged
all the rage
deranged
whores recovered
covered
discovered
what ever.
society cuts no quarters
for them.
or for
recalcitrant children
and rundown villas
and redundant parents
and has been stars
society treats all equally
unfairly
and we play along.
the world is full of people
who beg
extend your hand
i need that touch
so i can
pick myself off of this ground
and be whole again
and we
who have both hands
and arms and can easily carry
this burden
look
and look away.
