Silence eludes these confines
Always someone screaming obscenities
Some feel like they must unload crap on me
Like I don't have my own cesspool
I turn my music way up
Hoping to drown out the woes—
While the day presses on
I'm sure there will be another intrude
To express his single-minded views
How he hates the world
I wish I could just turn a page
And positive gestures would materialize

Thank you for your post.

I just wanted to share that I was a little bit excited when I saw the word cesspool. I had recently come across the word and did not know what it meant, so I looked it up. But I did not have to look up what the word meant this time. :)
