Too too too

Bar outside of Philly

man tells me

you’re too much

called me a pissant

as I beat his bar score

at video baseball

first lucky try

offered me a visit outside

dead end job

& the supervisor

gives all the easy shifts

to the ladies

cos y’know

the man got needs

called me a troublemaker

too pushy for my own good

fired me for insubordination

of course

better place to be

& the boss lady

tells me easy

you are too sensitive

to be in this line of work

wants to let me go

help me find salvation


& all I need

is the money

place to spend the days

but I think I got the message

from the girl

who did not struggle

to let me go

only with the words

you are just too….
