"Homo sum" Terence


I can't walk
Not here
Not there
This is a minefield
A catastrophe
A glass-filled floor
I can't ever escape
Get out of
Or avoid

I can't step
Not here
Not there
This is a nail
A bomb
A ticking tantrum
I can't ever escape
Get out of
Or avoid

I can't run
Not here
Not there
This is a cliff's edge
A void
An endless black hole
I can't ever escape
Get out of
Or avoid

I can't scream
Not here
Not There
This is an asylum
A nutty shack
A compressed insanity
I can't ever escape
Get out of
Or avoid

I can't cry
Not here
Not there
This is a prison
A Jailhouse
A repressed fear
I can't ever escape
Get out of
Or avoid

I can't
Not ever
Not when
I must constantly
Escape
Get out of
And avoid
Every
Single
Eggshell
