in your shoes

 

by J.J. Campbell

 

 

taste the anger

on the tongue

 

relish this

moment

 

one of the few

things that are

real anymore

 

harness it

 

use it to your

advantage

 

let everyone

talk about the

crazy fucker

going nuts

 

the madman

rambling while

walking down

the street

 

they never

bothered to

take any steps

in your shoes

 

they don’t have

the guts

 

their privilege

makes them weak,

vulnerable

 

take your abused

body and become

the weapon they

fear

 

 

 

J.J. Campbell (1976 –?) comes from a long line of assholes. He's been widely published over the years, most recently at Duane's PoeTree, Midnight Lane Boutique, ZYX, In Between Hangovers, and Synchronized Chaos. You can find him most days botching about something on his highly entertaining blog, evil delights. (http://evildelights.blogspot.com)
