Weak Link
(6/5/2021)


Brother Bollocks
lives
in a continual
state
of disbelief

amazed
as he
watches
his fellow
humans

their
families

friends

careers

hobbies

international
vacations

marveling
at the multitude
of activities
that they cram
into their
waking hours

Brother Bollocks
barely functions
in this society

working
a simple
job

improbably
paying the rent

barely
buying groceries
for himself

struggling
each day
in solitude

maintaining
his meager
needs

feeling
eaten alive
by the living
of this
life

how
do they
do it?

dancing
upon
this planet

with smiles
upon their
faces

only occasionally
killing
each other
