SOCIAL STANDARDS

All my short life,
I've lived within the
boundaries
of this megalopolis.
not in the 'slums'
nor in the 'burbs'
But in the bushes.
Dancing in the rain.
But when the town
sleeps,
I close my right eye
and walk the tightrope.
Drawing inexplicable
pleasure
from tripping over.
Crossing the bloody
boundary.
Lept by the wounded
sheep
who are terrified to
enter
This blaphemous ghost
town.
It's here where I have a
home,
a family,
a friend.
My true friend knows,
why I can't stay.
The sun will rise,
and with it
social standards.

As the prior post exclaimed, ****ing
brilliant! Hope you make sure the short life
gets much longer, and you don't succumb to
social standards.
