Outside the Box
I walk on the edge of unacceptabilities
Experimenting with the bizarre my norm,
And I enjoy flouting the accepted form
Insulting the more refined sensibilities.
I am the product of inquisitive thinking
Gleefully stepping outside the box,
While the conventional laughs and mocks
As its fragile self-esteem is slowing sinking.
Yes, my lifestyle thrives on the reckless
I'm quite aware many turn up their noses
While I show disdain for artificial poses,
And the phoniness of the properly feckless.
