flipped right through
like one of fifty two
nothing but spite brews
as lies spew and prides bruise

every bit as bitter as I seem
the tension teems and splits the seams
I explode through trusses and splintered beams
as bright white anger quickly gleans

Outcast, miscasted actor, cast away
breaking my neck to live today
making a wreck of my field of play
feeling like bait for predators prey

Bye now
   Bye to you too
       Really? you too?
           In the end they all go
              and I keep company with my shadow
