Is there anything worse than routine?
To keep things in order?
To keep things pristine?
From the early riser who has a shave,
cleans his teeth,
and digs his grave.
From the office workers droning in their caves,
to the repetetive programmes on the box that we gaze.
Change it a little,
learn to love life,
do not be fooled by society's strife!
The day will come when you are old and grey and ,
you will look at your reflection and solemnly say,
I wished i had done all those things that i wanted,
but my time is long gone
my soul lives no longer.
