Siphoned

The sickness of the world
siphoned into me
and hot poisoned weakness
stress written across this brow

Now I can't pay the rent
jack the price as a penalty
somehow have to make this work
no handouts or charity

Four days in and out of bed
countless drugs
to numb the condition of my head
burning fever, hallucinations clearer

Weary of this world
with baseless rules and regulations
have to play by their rules
but don't compete at all

Strangers keep calling
sending messages
wanting 20 questions
this indecision stalling

Losing interest
please tell me your name
boasting about your successes
not sure how factual that even is.
