I Want to Walk around the Town

I want to walk around the town
so I can see who’s there.
I want to see the pretty girls
saunter without care.

I want to see the strutting boys
stick out their peacock chest
and hope their template inky arms
stand out from all the rest.

To be at home among the crowd,
a friend in every face;
Our lives as something to be shared
and not some squalid race.

I want to see how people are
who think they still belong,
remember how I felt like them
before my hope had gone.
