Podium Pisspot

Let the breathing become tough
and the eyes quick shudder in rapping repetitions 

Metaphorically I'm fine
In reality I'm screaming
as an odd teaming
of pupils gather here
to bare witness
take notes
Chore up the damagers and skip past their throats

Never mind
Thought there was some talk of speaking up
from someone who claims they heard something in the midst of whispered grunts

Where would the false prophets sit
if the subconscious is late to the carnival
Where will the unconscious lay
If the awake keep smashing up clocks

Admission of the hull taking damage
is a critical key
for a passive aggressors daily intake
of an optimists analytical glee


But there will be change
there will be a costly account of a victim
and a differing view of what will occur

Sprout the ideas to shout
Dealing with clout
Reeling from doubt
It has to be made from the inside out
