Satisfaction by Ashwin

Sitting in the dark corner,
Shunned by those who are above me,
I take their maiming in stride,
And try to let it be

Then I’m pushed one inch too far,
Just one comment too much,
I’m ready to smack the next bastard who speaks,
Like an over-dosed drunk at a bar

I do 10 times what is asked from me,
And with all of you laughing in my face,
There is only so far that I will be nudged,
Before I leave this place

Then without me you come crawling back,
And I take no notice at all,
So I sit back and watch with great content,
Oh, how the mighty shall fall.
