2.1190 : 8/5/08 : Troubles

Is this any way to
respond to troubles
as I’m marking time and
the stubble’s growing on my neck
if I had time to think
I’d nod at how things can stink
and I might get mad as heck
but when troubles come in torrents
I batten down
and despite your snide contempt
get my knees to the ground
You must live through it all
that’s the only rule
until your race is run
and you’re done with this school
