The Traveller

I am just travelling through
I play no real part.
Stepped in through the wrong door
making my way back to start.
Zigzagging down the straight and narrow
placing sanity on the line.
Hoping the next few adventures
will lead me out into sunshine.
Dancing with the Devil
whistling at the Pied-Piper.
Replacing the people who care
with fork-tongued vipers.
Hiding away my innocence
as far from me as I can.
If you’re my worst enemy
well then, I’m your biggest fan.
so you don’t have to shout and question
to confuse my weary brain.
Save your breath, don’t bother me
for this Traveller’s already insane.
