Basement Boys

By Lydia Manx

So appropriate
Skittering from the dark
Shuttered eyes
Soft spoken lies

Basement boys -- bitter in their words
Spewing phases and semi-rhymes

Music that they hear
Soundless to the world
Creates their darkness -- whole
A piece of inhumanity

Scars they hold deep
Wounds they bind with anger
Not meeting others glare
As they sell out their hopes

Trying to communicate
Injustice and slights -- real
Yet in their words -- hate and fears
Reveal another weak spot

Basement boys -- cooking up anarchy
With letters and pictures
