Melody

In a faceless world filled with shoves and bumps

With a base of harsh and angry words

Hurled from the mouths of others and seared into ears

To embed in the backbone of the inflicted

Leaving the subject with a stoop that defied surgery

And the cure for this brand of scoliosis

Was the soothing melody of soft rock

With the soft sweet words of a human.
