LAST GASP

Low man on the totem pole
High wire act at the circus
Way beyond second fiddle is the case so
Take a last gasp before reaching for the respirator

Finally run out of chances
Stepped over once more on the street
Overlooked again in a crowded room of strangers
Brushed off
Dismissed
Ran the course
Thrown away

The milk’s expired cause it only sits so long
The vacuum’s broke it’s not meant to go forever
Tell me why in the world is it everything starts new
And with each passing moment’s getting old?
