Walking the Tight Throat

Life's a splitting  
fraying tight rope  
 
There's nobody  
to blame although  
 
with all the beasts  
of complication
 
understandably  
we're all feeling  
under fire from  
all directions  
 
There are so many enemies  
it's hard not to imagine  
a few extra
 
Knowing this I could hardly blame  
anyone who aims a few rounds  
in my direction  
 
I also can't deny how much it hurts...
 
Blame should rest with those who  
warped our paranoid culture  
into stiffer self protection
