I would wander around their floors

I would wander around their floors
Trying to understand
Those who are proper and correct
Who say it is the right thing to do

Those who lived – in a wonderland
Those who only talked to themselves
Those who were correct
And knew – I was incorrect

Those who did right, that knew I did wrong
Because I didn’t understand
Because I wandered around their floors

I was not one of them, I was not anything
this was not right; this was not proper
It was not correct to be an alien
To be a swamp thing – in their wonderland
It was right and proper that I should go
It was correct to get rid of me

They were honest and good
and they lived in wonderland
I was despicable, I was talked about
I tried to help – in return for wisdom
They laughed
behind my back –

They were Alices,
the men in drag
The politically correct;
the tea drinkers
The white rabbits of wonderful disguises
The watching eyes
Connected to the brain of it all
The wise brain
behind a black door
In the well-run ministry
Of Upminstery

The proper ones with groping fingers
The dissen’perverted
in wigs and ties
Who ran the schools,
who judged the children
Who condemned the new born
and blackened the teen

The white glowing snake
in the golden grass
that sorted and filtered
the blinded, the poorest
that could not understand
What it was – to be correct
To be doing right, to be perfect

Who was I to question their judgement
With my ignorance
I got chucked out,
and even the streets
Rejected me

Those with their forms of art
And justice and correctness
Its only right – said they
As they poured the tea
from the China teapot
