rinse recycle repeat

I try to fit in with the crowd

slide in & take a seat

sit still for a while

try not to make a peep

but then somebody

any one of them

will say something stupid & crass

& I can’t take the heat

the words come tumbling out

& I try you know how hard I try

not to be harsh

say something rash

I cannot take back

& I know they can’t help it

never take to time to really think

the alone time to work out their own positions

instead rinse recycle re use others opinions

never learn to ignore what they’ve been spoon fed

taking off the reins of heritage & lore

& too soon I’m back in the thick of it

wanting to reach the asleep at the wheel

& they hate you for showing them

there are different ideas out there

other ways to think
