heart unslung

self anointed
the disappointed
typecast in a role
forever appointed
to be the fool
a useless tool
or whatever comes
back smiling.

this routine becomes
the classic error
you were never
smooth
nor debonair
even if you tried
you’re sure
you’d fail
assigned to the lower rung
you watch with your
heart unslung
never spoke before spun
losing everything
under your sun.
