Passing Up On The Ride This Time 

Sometimes 

You are just here

The world steams along

And you’re sitting on the bench

Watching it pass by 

Not waiting or wanting to ride

Heavy heat bares down on you

And it is not coming from the sun

The neck is stiff from holding your head up

You endure the pain because you don’t want to stoop to their level 

The world can push and push you

I have no plot in the cemetery ready

So I turn away from the world

Stiff neck and all

For a while, I will enjoy the sun

The world, it just steams on by
