square peg by davespertine square peg by davespertine
square peg

why isn't the sun square
why doesn't it orbit around corners
why can't it have edges
nice straight line
instead of those hot curves

sometimes i feel like a square peg
in a round hole
and i blame bureaucracy

when the sun sets
you don't put it in a box
and close the lid

so stop trying to pigeon hole me

i want to be what i am
and be recognised for what i do
not have to justify myself by what i have done

i don't have a CV
i won't define myself for your approval
on a piece of paper

i won't sell myself
you can't buy me
you don't own me

my time
is my own

if the sun had a shape of a square,we'd live in a pixel universe
