Inspiration piece

You are roughly made
and unsophisticated. Decrepit.
Hewn and hallowed out.
The barn may have burnt down
because we used you for temporary repairs.
Frayed and lying in the firey sun
next to the hot barn caused your
own explosion.
The barn simply ceased to exist.
You started to behave erratically,
uncontrollable, yourself unsoothed
and scorched.
I’m done with these slap-dash repairs,
and your scraps of
bailing twine that
fail catastrophically
at times of critical stress.
It was all fine until you went off
and lost your cool.
You’re tearin’ up Jack,
causing a ruckus
and catching on fire.
