pouncers

tell me the why

she goes

about your naivete

why do you cling on to that?

& where to begin?

this is not naivete I say

I know people are dishonest all around

waiting to pounce

on something I have to say

put me in a box with a label

but I refuse to play

I’m just saying what I have to say

doing what I think is right in the world

& if you want to be the pouncer

make me wrong

then that’s on you eh?

& that’s very different behaviour

from people who want to educate

if you got something better

can show me a smarter way

I’m in

& you? I ask

what are you waiting to catch me on?

tell me now

lets get all of that nonsense

out of the way

& move on
