Boy In The Plastic Bubble

When Artemio was growing up
he lived in a plastic bubble

to keep from being infected
by the outside world

he wore blinders like a horse
he sang only his own songs

he wrote only his own writing
colored his own colors

but one day his bubble burst
and the world came rushing in

engulfing Artemio in a tremendous sea
expelling all his misconceptions about himself

Artemio gasped for air
Artemio thrashed about

yet soon he was thriving in this alien world
soon he had mastered it conquered it

carnal, I hate to burst your bubble
but somebody has to
