I taught nothing 

nobody listened


I eavesdropped 

on conversations



tried to imagine


morning came 

sometimes I relented


but I was there 

head full of danger  


heart full 

of mother


even when 

I could’ve killed 

the people 


I was working for

I still wore 


the button- 

down shirt

You have quite a talent for being plainspoken without being boring or mundane--a skill I've tried to master with little success.

This speaks to me of duty, and not necessarily one you agree with. Is the title a reference to what you (the subject) was engaged in.

I appreciate it could stand for any number of things, but that is just how it struck me.

Often our uniforms do not portray our beliefs, that is a concept that maybe only a minority might understand, thankfully.
