FIVE MINUTE POEM BY JOHN

FIVE MINUTE POEM BY JOHN…

THOSE VIOLETS ARE SO TERRIBLY, TERRIFICALLY BLUE
THAT’S ABOUT ALL I CAN THINK OF, HE REALLY HAS NO CLUE
HE JUST SLOWLY AND NON-COMPREHENDINGLY SHAKES HIS HEAD
HE IS TAKING OUT THE TRASH TONIGHT, BY AND FOR HIS STEAD
…ON HIS WAY TO HIS DEATHBED
HE DOES THE DISHES ALL OF THE TIME, HE IS ALWAYS IN THE RED
ALWAYS IN THE RED…

FIVE MINUTE POEM BY JANE…

TONIGHT I HAVE SIGNED UP FOR THE DISHES
SO AFTER I EAT, WHEN I AM THROUGH WITH MY PRINCES
I WILL GO CHANGE INTO MY YUCKY T-SHIRT
AND BUSY MYSELF DOING THE DISHES, AND CLEANING UP DIRT
YOU CAN FIND ASYLUM IN ALMOST ANYTHING IF YOU TRY
I LIKE THE PEOPLE HERE, BY-AND-BY, SHE SAID WITH A SIGH
I GET REALLY STRESSED OUT SOMETIMES, HOW DROLL
THEN I ASK MYSELF WHY, IF YOU HAVE NO CONTROL
WHAT WILL BE TAKEN, WILL BE TAKEN, FROM MY STOLEN LIFETIME
HOWEVER I CANNOT ESCAPE THE PAIN I AM IN ALL THE TIME
I WISH I COULD MAKE THAT GO AWAY
BUT I DON’T KNOW HOW TO, I’VE BEEN BETRAYED

…JANE IS JOHN
JOHN WAS MARTYRED

Artist's Description

This is about being made to clean up a mess that someone else made, or more specifically it is about having to deal with problems other people have created for you because they think it is alright to do anything to you with no concern for the effect it has on you or the people that you love.
