POETRY | ‘IF YOU’D TO REVOLT, THEN LET MY PROBLEMS BRING US ALL TOGETHER IN COMMON’

RAGAMUFFIN

It’s easy to pon­ti­fic­ate when your pock­ets are full, when you haven’t nearly died (which I have),

when you haven’t lost your teef (which I have),

when you haven’t been sec­tioned (which I have),

when your stom­ach hasn’t exploded inside of you (which mine has),

when you haven’t fallen onto train tracks and split your head open (which I have) and when you don’t have Type 1 Dia­betes  (which I do).

The list is end­less and all I’ve ever wanted to do is change the lives of all of us, for the bet­ter.

I’ve seen and met more misery than I care to share. Good for me, or a shame for me. You’ll all be the judges.  By the way, I’m only 30 years old.

But I feel that people who feel com­fort­able,  aren’t up for all that non­sense. I’m a post­man. I deliv­er people’s unwanted bills every day and everything I’ve explained is why I’d like an non­vi­ol­ent revolu­tion. For all of us.

I’m truly speak­ing from embittered exper­i­ence here.

I just want change for all of us and luck­ily, I’ve still got the drive to make it hap­pen.

The fol­low­ing two tabs change con­tent below.
