Pipe Dreams*~by Constancio Sulapas Asumen Jr



Cdxxxviii ~≫ Pipe Dreams*

CDXXXVIII ~> Pipe Dreams*
(Opus438 ~> Pipe Dreams)
Knowing the universe is infinite,
Warrants not that your trip shall never end.
Yet neither own it as your demerit
Should you fall short of what the stars portend
Nor sap the merits of what you attend:
Schadenfreude, when deployed reflexive,
Likely proves highly counter-productive!
Falling far short of your perennial mark,
You aim higher, intent to compensate
For home runs that remain inside the park
Gifting you shortcomings you must placate
Else enshrines your defeat for boilerplate:
The joys you miss tease harder to replace;
With dispatch you dismiss for less duress!
Stroll the balmy Shangri La promenades,
Fill your lungs surfeit with Elysian air;
The hallmarks of exotic escapades
Exude the trappings of the debonair
Trenchantly concealing too much despair:
Pipe dreams, you invoke for compensation
On finding your luck beyond redemption!
