Not As They Say in My City

Admitting defeat
looking away
paying no attention to the man behind the curtain
rats jumping ship
letting the sleeping dog lie
not rocking the boat anymore
you can’t fight city hall
letting the baloon go
watching the parade go by
hearing the fat lady sing

so many poetic ways of saying to give up
not enough ways to encourage the right fight
