Poetry By: devilrod

A brief take on the lotus eaters.

So inane in each moment


So glib with each rambling thought

In shambles

The very world around, once created

Collapsing to the ground

And not so much as a lifted brow

One lifted hand, to the horizon, as it covers over

All here, crystalized into form

The eaters of the lotus

Muscles atrophied

Expressions so utterly vacant

An entire tribe of man

Held captive by the earth
