A little less than second rate
My bowtie’s tied
Bent out of shape
And so am I

It looks like Chevrolet
On its driver’s side
And I feel like I am
Underneath the wreck

Pinned and pining
My pulse increasing
Under pressure
And I, and I

Am calm and comforted
Though I am out of my mind
And so far behind
I wish the weight

Of the world
Were on my shoulders
Instead of firmly on my chest

What a picturesque way,
To start the day.....

I like this poem. Like "pinned and pining" and what the "and I, and I" line does to the pace.
