Torn Contract - Poetry

Torn Contract

I tried to get people on board this ship
They just carried on walking
Not feeling the ride was worth it
They wouldn't get off the safety pillows
Maybe I should give them a preview

My head bounces off a wall
Side to side
Side to side
Inflated images of grandeur begin to rise
I saw everyone gather on the roof
The lift was broke

Think in reverse and escape
Don't let anyone walk behind you
Only your shadow
With swaying bodies
Laughing out loud
Not realising how high the barriers were

It feels like I'm walking through thick custard
You read my horoscope out loud
But I don't believe in them
I gave you the wrong star sign
So now you think I'm a Leo

I have torn up my contract
