Repetitive chase

 

Weary whispers plating out the future

Caution Attached yet pyrotechnics await

Akin to hand rearing a cobra

The ordinances, furnished on the slate

Then karma and outcomes we bait

 

Woven lives of known families

The stability remains and persists

Want of stability, need to fulfil dreams

Yet the fire and urge to play, can’t resist

And skewed logic shows nothing amiss

 

No guilt while the grey matter dulled

Not thought just instinct at hand

Mirages align and the obvious anything but

Our emotions not the principled stand

 In the wings fat lady and her band

 

So the chase and the futile exercise

When all so close is what, is wanted

And the distant is the poisoned dream

Our push for the scary and hunted

Our here and now and future squandered
