The stage is my home
and i could never be there enough
traded hits for the prose
so fought to steal shows
knife crime profiteers
the subject matter is deeper
never would the day come
when i'd meet a poet afraid of introspection
scream a problem, end with a familiar question
and it's not my day
not my time, but though i wait
i don't do it in line
find another, please.
Every time i make a breakthrough
i just break into another room with a view
of a new room i have to break into.
