Under my brain,
there's something breaking me down;
below my name,
a place carrying me around.

Lying here is easy,
every day, every night.

When it's cold,
worms sleep next to me.
I don't mind them like this darkness,
or all that marching.

Sometimes I wish I could stand, just to stand.

But lying here is easy,
every day, every night.

Neighbors, neighbors, neighbors,
wish they would go away.
If only this hilltop
could be mine to stay.

Can't read, can't eat,
getting bloody tired of sleep.

But lying here is easy,
every day, every night.

Yes, lying here is easy,
every day, every night.

*penned Fall of 1974.
Edited to form:

below the subliminal
deep within manipulation
that's where tr^th resides

I hope you don't mind if I say this, but I can imagine this being a song, your poem is quite catchy and nicely made.
Thanks for the fun read!

Considering he is decaying in a casket, I suppose he could be "bored" out of his skull...While the Earth "below" him keeps "carrying " him around...Thanks for reading and commenting..B

Soos Sees Walking Dead
Worms. Out of season, I know, but a little "grave"-ity seemed in order...If they'd just stop marching around up there! I could get some rest.
