Flicker

Everything blurring by me

In shades of pink and red

Voices in a tunnel

That pulse inside my head

Maddening thumps of blood to the brain

Occasionally make me wonder

Are they not getting enough to theirs?

The frustration jars me like thunder

There's a flicker in the system

When the computer overheats

All these stupid little dogs

Only here for the treats

I keep it all together

But only for so long

For now I'm trapped in this prison

So I keep fighting through the throng

I wish I could fix the system

And tell them left from right

But my voice won't be heard over the clamor

I know it's a useless fight
