Daily missive breaks into the weekend Saturday the 22nd of April.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive breaks into the weekend Saturday the 22nd of April.

Head bowed
The weight
Worse than the expectation
Of improvement.
Burdens are cheap business
Everybody carries one
Sometimes more.
And when the strength
To endure is exceeded
By the urge to resign
The world takes on
A different perspective
Decisions influenced
By the need to let go.
Weariness takes a toll
On pleasure
The principle being
Drained with every
Drop of sweat
As night crawlers
And time callers
Make demands.
Even survivors
With steady hands
Have a hard time
Pouring the gravy.
Pardon me boys
That train pulled out
Of the station
Without waiting for a call.
The conductor
Lead the orchestra
To the wrong platform
And the composition has changed
Priorities rearranged.
There is no music
No purpose to fighting
No meaning in writing
No pearls.
Living is done
The sequence is run
A son jumped the gun
And is gone.
