They named him
They shamed him
They named her
They stoned her
They screamed justice
I scream brutish
They are no longer our homes
In which we keep our belongings
And then to have forty winks
We rise before the rest of the city
And retire last
Yet we are paid no more
For spending a sixth of the day
Trying to get to there.
What should you say to someone who offers you drugs (like heroin or coke), “No, thanks.” or “F**k off!”?
Would the former not be asking to be coerced?
Would the latter not be too rude and hurtful?
Should everyone try it at least once so you know it’s really nothing to write home about?
What if you try it and like the feel of it?
PS. I haven’t been offered any. I just wonder because it seems so remote to me…
So they exchange homes for two weeks
Husbands and offspring
Duties and needs
Perchance they exchange their lives
Dinners and chores
Work and pets
But what if the sparks fly
And the ‘sleeping arrangements’ are muddled?
