Not according to plan

They tell me what to do
Tell me what to wear
Sometimes
It doesn't go
According to plan
And on such events
I receive grotesque
Stares
From the boring faces
Of petty squares

I suffer their following me
In sidelong glances
Tracking, prodding
Characterising me
As if I were
a disfigured pear
Of all the sleepless dreams
This is surely a nightmare

Not according to plan

They tell me what to do

Tell me what to wear

Sometimes

It doesn't go

According to plan

And on such events

I receive grotesque

Stares

From the boring faces

Of petty squares

  •  

I suffer their following me

In sidelong glances

Tracking, prodding

Characterising me

As if I were

a disfigured pear

Of all the sleepless dreams

This is surely a nightmare
