Against the Wall

The Arts --- Poetry (Celebrating Poetry Month)--

Against the Wall
by

"Feels like we've been here before."
"Will this hurt?"
"They've got the wrong person!"
"Will you three just shut up!?"

"You guys wanna hear a joke?"
"What happens if they miss?"
"But I didn't do anything!"
"I've had enough of you three!"

"Anyone noticed we aren't blindfolded?"
"I feel like I'm about to piss on myself."
"Please! I'm innocent! Don't do this!"
"I can't endure these three anymore!"

"This is like déja vu all over again."
"I won't lie to you; I'm really scared."
"I don't belong here!"
"What are you waiting for? Do it!"

"See you fellas on the other side...hopefully."
"Will I feel anything?"
"Why isn't Anyone listening to me!"
"Get this over with, will you!"
