Some people just ask too many questions,
it’s like their nerves kick into overdrive
and they begin to project a desire to know
all the things
they’ve never actually cared about before.
I can see it in the way their eyes dance
like pupils jumping through hoops
out into the great unknown
where only the last one listening
can become the sole survivor
in a world where opinions
are used as swords rather than shields
and the only standards we have
applied to other people.
