donkeys

its hard to pin the tail

on the donkey now

the why & what of it

but we hated our parents

maybe it was

their indifference to us

never getting us

the ridicule

embarrassing us for fun

in front of their friends

family

yeah

that’d do it

that & the endless rules

don’t do that

be like the other kids

be something other

than who you are

& we swore blood oaths

to be different

not be the same

better than this them

but I look around now

to realise

so few of us made that
