A song that plays 
for all the egotistical 
and abusive 
 arses in the World
who think their spit 
is High Tide

*    *    *

Think your spit

is high tide

and gonna drown

the dissenters?

It won’t be long

until you swallow

with all you said

to follow

.

Maybe it’s time

to shut the hell up

build a bridge

with ropes your

tongue can tie

maybe you can

save your mouth

from turning into

an open, sucking drain

like you think the world is

for your coming

.

Who is gonna save

the choking man

opening his mouth wide

to a typhoon

learning it hard

when it hurts

when going down

the liquid burns

.

Maybe it’s time

you learn the words

rescued by silence

hidden by lips

maybe it’s just time

to shut up

taste some integrity

a little compassion

make wisdom

the cool sip

tongues can swim

and survive

some humanity

.
