Dethrone yourself

pick up your wooden arms,

let your wrists snap like twigs

and take it off.

Dethrone yourself.

Let your fingernails

scratch at golden paint

you rubbed under your florescent eyes.

Let yourself become unwanted, unneeded.

Dethrone yourself.

Remove the responsibility of respect.

Take that heavy set off your head,

dethrone yourself.

It will be lighter.

  3. No I meant I couldn't tell you accurately how VERY great and useful it is.
    I could not articulate how highly I thought of it. Simply, I think it is very very good.
