The sacrificial victim overwrought.

Humans can be classified like nuts
To give a new  description  on us all
Some are soft and some hard to split.

Some of us have walls like prisons built
Some of us  divide  what might be whole
Humans can be classified like nuts

This simile is bad so I shall quit
Yet I might have discovered were I bold
Our defences keep us hidden  in a script

Some of  us are fat, some have no butt
Some are hot and some feel  freezing cold
Humans can be classified like nuts

What our parents said’s not Holy Writ
Yet we do need boundaries to hold
Our defences keep us hidden  in a script

We act the part that we unconscious caught
I might be the black sheep in the fold.
The sacrificial victim overwrought.

We are all  mere creatures who might fall
Like Eve who shared the apple with us all
Humans can be classified  like ducks
Some are deft and some  get cruelly struck
