Maybe I don’t want to keep “marching on”.
What if I want to sink down and wallow
In the awfulness of an injustice
That’s too large to quickly swallow?

Perhaps I don’t want to sip a nice cup of tea.
I want to kick and scream and pound the floor
Because somebody much less deserving than me
Got their way in things once more.

Suppose I don’t care that one door closes
So another one can spring open?
Obviously I wanted to go through that first door.
Hello? That’s the one I had chosen.

I dig that there’s a bigger plan.
I’m sure it’s spectacular, it’s sublime.
But when they’re choosing the beat for that Different Drummer to play,
Could they just once pick mine?
