Hermit

I hit
Every,
Single,
Red light
On my way
To work.
Every.
Single.
Fucking.
One.
That’s like,
Sixteen
Red lights.
Like
Sixteen
Kicks on the
Shinbone.
It pissed
Me off
So much
That I just
Turned around
And went
Home.
And then I
Hit sixteen
More red
Lights.
Fuck!
I’m never
Leaving
The house
Again.
