Poem: I Like to Curse

img-thing

A poem by Jonita Simmons.

 

To say things like ‘fuck’, ‘shit’ and ‘damn’,

Doesn’t particularly matter how I’m feeling,

Could be over the moon, happy as a pig in

Or flat out pissed off, going crazy mad –

Just wanna feel something, anything at all

Hell – with everyone else walking around

Like they’ve been anesthetized or something,

Gone friggin’ Francis Farmer on me,

Had a lobotomy to straighten their ass out –

Don’t care if that makes me poor white trash,

Or a darkie from Nigger town –

At least I’ve got some human in me,

Can express myself – while there you are

Tied up, buried alive by your thoughts,

Camouflaged in your skin,

On permanent lock down
