Look Closer


slow down

Look closer

Every day the same damn things,

Rushing people,

The chaos it brings.

‘Just slow down’ I long to yell

They’d never hear me,

Over this hell.

Where are they going?

Where’s the fire?

What’s the use?

The outlook’s dire.

I just sit back and

Let them go

Their troubles pass

And overflow.

I was once where

They are, a rat among

The great and now I make

My own destiny, I control

My fate.

I pick and choose

As they all trail by,

My next victim, the one

Who is next to die.

‘Ignorance is bliss’ they say

Well not this time, look closer

At the attention you pay.
