twenty people a day

only
twenty people away
twenty people a day
to keep the wolves at bay
twenty people a day
to stop this red flow from my
cholesterol infected nicotine stimulated
heart
this bloated heart
this quailing heart
this failing heart
only
twenty people a day
to keep the owner of the stable away
horses for courses they say
maybe this horse has run its course
i used to love my stable
now its making me unstable
unable to feed the horse that makes
the wolves at the door
fat
only
twenty people a day
i want to make me go away
sleepless nights leave me in fright
feel like im shrinking
losing height and
might
also be losing
a little sanity
will never prevail
because today its
only
twenty people a day
tomorrow its

darkness…
