Stand Tall! (National Poetry Writing Month #26)   Leave a comment

You missed paying your rent
Stand Tall!
Your paycheck’s all been spent
Stand Tall!
You bills will never dent
Stand Tall!
You still live with the ‘rents
Stand Tall!

You do not want to work
Stand Tall!
Your friends think your a jerk
Stand Tall!
You have a sneering smirk
Stand Tall!
You’re lazy; it’s a quirk
Stand Tall!

This opinion you exalt;
Stand Tall!
“It someone else’s fault!”
Stand Tall!
Your moneys in their vault
Stand Tall!
Your wounds are full of salt
Stand Tall!

It can’t be that you suck
Stand Tall!
You’re just down on your luck
Stand Tall!
You’re not a stupid schmuck
Stand Tall!
You’re just a little stuck
Stand Tall

No, you’re not the dick
Stand Tall!
Its them; he is the prick
Stand Tall!
With his opinion politic.
Stand Tall!
So time to throw the brick
Stand Tall!
