The Snail Mission

I saw the rainbow in the water
But I was black and had no place;
The dolphins swimming through the waves,
And me, a blobfish, bobbing for grace.

Look at the clouds
Wooed by white peacocks
Floating in a circle
On the clear blue pool.

I stood by the fence, staring at
A nobody, a nullity
I was a soldier, lost without a mission.
I was a comedian, mute with no quips.

They all think I’m crazy,
I know I can’t be loved.
Just take it away, take it all,
But leave me, blinded, broken,

The Snail Mission. The little duo who are slow (when it comes to deadlines) and like to eat, but occasionally go on strange adventures.
