I Tried

Everybody knows that nobody knows,

That nobody knows that I tried,
That I tried not to sit or fold arms,
Or fold arms crippled by shots from brothers,
From brothers whose hearts are biled,
Hearts biled by fathers who lead us,
Who lead us to the feast of fists,
Feast of fists of barren palms,
Barren palms wearied by bankrupt guts…

Everybody knows that nobody cares
That nobody cares that I tried,
That I tried, but here I am…
Here I am – where men who tried not reside.
