Daily missive for Monday the 3rd of July~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Monday the 3rd of July

Stop fighting
The temptation
To float is timeless
Listen to the singing
A siren calling
In constant vibration
Incessant throbbing
Pulsating with every
Heartbeat
A sluggish surge
Resistant to change
Dedicated modification
Or response.
A desultory buzz
Wearying
Stubbornly possessive
Claiming its prize
Owning its reward.
Not just a pound
But the whole
Of the flesh
Made victim
To its keening.
Hear the cry
A righteous demand
For attention
Outstripping reason.
Disregarding the
Constancy of its petition
A fool’s errand
Heed its mandate
Cede the decision
In its favour.
There is no sympathy
In Pyrrhic victory
No matter
What your skills
To stay ahead
In your quest
Get some rest
As tiredness kills.
