I sit

Teetering

Watching the world

Point, smile, laugh

Jeering

I am high,

High above

Unconscious of the

Splintering

Oblivious to the

Cautioning, I sit

Watching humanity

Trample, spit,

Burning and shaming and

Littering each other with

Hate, violently

Blithering, hoping to

Silence our own pain

Screaming out for someone

To come help but unable

To articulate

This is why I stay

High up here

Out of the way

I’ve been battered enough

I don’t need to
