why oh why do people run

when by this way

too close they come?

what is it here they see within

that leads to partings

and smiles so thin?

is it words or something worse

when delving under

each line and verse?

beneath this superficial shell

do they perceive

something unwell?

supposedly so wonderful

yet none will stay

to share their souls?

perhaps the voodoo man was right,

such needy dreams are

beyond their sight

so here within this hermit’s

shell may be my lot

to ever dwell

or it will be if i pen much more

shite like this at any rate…
