Sensitivity

Jenny's life is full of static
Running scared on automatic
Skeletons hide in her attic, screaming to burst free.
Sammy's life is not much better
Goes from drought to stormy weather
Ego crushed with just a feather. Sensitivity.

Burdens light are burdens massive
Made much worse by being passive
Blossoming to hyperactive sensitivity.
Blaming all on faceless others
Desperate anger slowly smothers
Overdriven by their utter sensitivity.

Erin's pace is super-frantic
Hurry, hurry, drives her manic
Running, sliding, verge of panic, about to climb a tree.
Ollie ought to know much better
Still he's even worse the fretter
Drowning as his seas get wetter. Sensitivity.

Burdens light are burdens massive
Made much worse by being passive
Blossoming to hyperactive sensitivity.
Blaming all on faceless others
Desperate anger slowly smothers
Overdriven by their utter sensitivity.

Why does this sound oh, so Russian?
Aching head must mean concussion
Beaten senseless by percussion. Sensitivity.
Amplifying every ripple
One is two and soon is triple
Imaginary fates that cripple sensibility.

Jenny's life is full of static
Running scared on automatic
Skeletons hide in her attic, screaming to burst free.
Sammy's life is not much better
Goes from drought to stormy weather
Ego crushed with just a feather. Sensitivity.

Why must they exhibit so much sensitivity?
