Why I Occupy

There is a head game
that none of us wants but
it's there anyway.

There is a head game
that interferes with what we are trying
(in all of our fumbling ineptitude) to say.

There is a head game
that distracts us from quality of life
to
the quantity of stuff for which we must pay.

There is a heart game
that giggles and grins and cares....

I wanna go that way.
