Double-Duty

Have felt the sting of the bumblebee
Took a bite out of life on the cutting edge
Clung tightly onto reality
when all I perceived proved illusory,
labeled ‘lunacy’ by non-believers,
applauded for my attempts at poetry
acting in my own defense
on trial charged with sins against humanity
contrived for viewer’s twisted delight,
falling flat on my face in denial
making a shitty liar out of me
doing double-duty as a saint on the pyre of life
