All this talk of the


The unsympathetic

Is almost as comical

As it is alarming

Getting a taste

Of what it’s been like

In Our World

Experience life

Outside of the fishbowl

Welcome to Uncertain Times

They’ve always been here

You just never had to notice

Never had to care

Momma always said

“gonna get worse ‘fore it gets better.”

With that kinda outlook,

No wonder things got so bad.

But things were never so bad

I couldn’t survive them.

What she was preparing me for: survival

Of the worst

The world

Could offer.

You’re just getting your first taste

The scales fall from your eyes.

But you do not yet see.
