Resilience

It’s not us, it’s you

You’re weak and slightly wrong

You need more ‘resilience’

or you’re going to break the bank

You see, your flesh and blood are problems

You bleed when you are cut

Your brittle bones keep breaking

Everytime you’re hit by a truck

And look, when we push you,

You always seem to fall

It’s okay, though we can help you

To live in our world

 

We can gently take your bones out

and fill you full of gold

We can burn away your nerves,

And teach you to build a cage for your soul

We can give you some wire, but we can’t “do the work”

We can wait for a while but try not to take too long

And just come back when you are ready

to live in our world.
