I need a new shower.

The streams are weak

And cannot blast away

The grime and dirt.

The mud has stained my skin,

A giant scar tattooed

To my body forever.

And anyone who sees it

Will know.


I turn the lever,

Steam thickening, I breathe it in,

I'm turning scalding red

But it doesn't work.

No matter how hot the water is,

No matter how rapidly

It crashes down on me

It is never able to wash away

The wrong of today.
