Make Mother Merry Proud

clock punched 10 hours later
no blood shed no feelings hurt
where’s my congratulations

took a shower
sins washed clean from my body
dingy run off did not leave a ring in the tub
where’s my reward

saw a deformed freak in the street
no gaffes did not stare did not ridicule
I’m a humanitarian
where’s my prize?

human beings being human 
enough to blow your mind clear across the Atlantic
for I, we, exist
where’s our just desserts?
