Working Underground

I’m not a break and enter guy.
I like to act break and enter,
but you see through all of that.

I take my work underground.
Won’t see me running short planks.
Others break and enter, sucking air.

I’m no voodoo shop piece,
But I’m such a pitiful snake.

      Thank you so much! Your comment means a great deal. I had doubt about whether this might express what I was after and it is nice to know that you identify with it in this way.

    This is amazing. Poignant, honest, and there is a sweetness about it. I don’t mean like happy ending sweetness, but sweetness as in an innocence revealed behind the bravado. I love the ending “I’m no voodoo shop piece, But I’m such a pitiful snake.”
