	i take pity		7-1-99

	several negative representations
	toil of the downtrodden
	is it my empty existance
	masked in appropriate words?
	that style masses sympathize with
	echoing the nasty thoughts
	so buried and hidden
	as if i struck oil
	and emotion flows free
	only to be contained
	back to an even flow
	more accustomed with
	sad, i take pity
