“Broke”

 “Broke”

I’m breaking up, breaking down
Breaking in, and I’m breaking out

On brink to break, I’m breaking bad!
Brake the brakes, I’m breaking mad!

Break with Step. Break with Time.
Break seam in pants, break-dance for a dime.

Break bank, broken piggies tank
Break the trust, broken deal by bust

Break my balls, she breaks my will
Break it all, with systemic ill.

Break the weak, the meek and meager,
pandemic outbreak, breakout in fever,

Break in technoic plate, breaking dishes platter,
Break the damn, break earth before o heaven shatter

Break glass ceiling, break the record,
Break show biz, break shoe pleather,

Her mother says, “Go break a leg, Don’t break your back,
after commercial break, break into act”

She takes cue. A broken mirror, broken girl
We break bread for a broken world

Break the curse, breaking news for worse
Break open that wine, break fast for tonight we dine…

In hell, Broken bones from broken homes
A man broke coy for broken boy,

With broken wings, Broken dragons,
Broken promise, broken dreams,

My psychotic break, break the heart,
Break addiction, the habit,
break the cycle, continuum end to start

Give me a break! Break damnit break!
Why won’t you break!? Break free!

Break away. Breakthrough.
Break from the earth broken a new.

Pour out in tears for clouds to break,
And sun to shine for broken’s sake.

Broke, I’m broke. I’m broken. You broke me.
Is it too much ask of you to be okay with broken?

She broke my heart, okay! Yet I can’t break hers open?

The spell was broken, yeah, but she awoke a bitch!
No kiss can fix a woman like this.

It took years of journey crusade to find
she was unbroken this whole time!?

She broke no law, committed no crime,
but dammit, she deserves to remain barren in rhyme.
