Human String Cheese Debacle

Woke up this morning completely startled

Reality managed to seep into the subconscious

Thinking about unsolvable problems too late at night

Worried about too many possible what ifs and why nots

Managed to sweat through my pajama top and sheets

A nightmare or a hot flash caused recent turn of events

Wondered where it came from; fully aware of why it happened

Looked in the mirror and felt disgusted by the sight

Feeling like a complete and fraudulent mess of person

A piece of cheese that's been mauled by the rat race

Nothing but a smoke screen compromised of lies

Based on a clever design of bravado, fear and Chocolate

Became a workplace vending machine vagabond

Raiding different ones to not be noticed for this compulsion

Of stress eating to cope with questionable feelings

A cross that has been bared for far too long

Needed to gather up enough sugar filled courage to get through

Another day filled with more pretense than anyone could handle

Even if they were avid Days of Our Lives fans

Sometimes the mundane is harder to swallow than the insane

Let the inmates run the forty hour asylum in piece

Not turn them into Stepford's newest model of lab rats

Looking for scraps of approval filled bread crumbs

Avoid picking things up off the floor unless it's been bleached

Numerous times for safety purposes and too many TV shows

Depicting how disgusting public floors really are

Searching for ways to stay together and not blow too many fuse boxes

Tempers constantly flaring; too many people walking a very tight rope

Stuck in a very narrow spot that could end favorably or with an obituary

Written in the tiniest corner of the New York Times

Another forgotten blurb of a life cut miserably too short

Choosing the road more often traveled by everyone

The numerous footprints should be a clear indication

Deciding to be stretched in more places than Gumby thought was possible

Time to become someone greater than expected: flexible

Hard to believe that this fate was chosen by anyone

But still a choice nonetheless

And that's all that matters in the end.

The definition of flexibility.
The definition of flexibility.
