OctPoWriMo Day 8 – I Went Too Far

Sometimes I tried to goad
And then I went too far
Or until I explode

Until I am disbar
I provoke or I tease
And then I went too far

Keep on buzzing like bees
Keep on hooting like owl
I provoke or I tease

“Keep out of these!” they growl
Can’t help it, I want in
Keep on hooting like owl

Take everything on chin
No boundaries for me
Can’t help it, I want in

“Don’t cross the line,” they plea
Sometimes I tried to goad
No boundaries for me
Or until I explode*

  1. Take everything on chin
    No boundaries for me

    These lines might haunt me for the rest of the day! The staccato delivery of the first sentence for me shows how we instruct ourselves when confusion hits, giving words to survival behaviour (that might be outdated by now, but those old messages are strong).
