Single white male seeking...

July 17, 2020

 

 

 

 

 

S.W.M. seeking retirement

 

 

 

I am no longer restless

 

Or eager for the fight

 

The assholes are running the racket

 

And for the most part,

 

Always have.

 

 

 

The tales are told by the victors

 

This we know

 

They also ensure that the losers are kept silent

 

At least in their lifetimes

 

(Do not open pre death).

 

 

 

I’m weary before my time

 

If I ever had the energy

 

Or perhaps it sailed by

 

Under a lidless sky

 

And that, dear friend

 

Was the proverbial boat.

 

 

 

I won’t accept defeat graciously

 

Nor would it make sense

 

Not to be embittered

 

In all its resplendent colours

 

(Is there anything more vibrant?)

 

Yet the heat has fallen

 

From my charged spirit.

 

 

 

All I seek now

 

Knowing that the past is firmly etched

 

Is the vacuum of silence

 

The space to breathe

 

And the freedom

 

To grow blissfully bored.

 

 

 

 

 

Next week, 

Controversial Satire (is there any other kind?)

Have a good week. (and if you don't, fake it).
