Heading Nowhere*~by Constancio Sulapas Asumen Jr


 

 

DXCIV ~> Heading Nowhere*

DXCIV ~> Heading Nowhere*
(Opus594 ~> Heading Nowhere)
(1)
Someone with no friends risks no betrayal;
Less so if one walks the straight and narrow;
Though you might be condemned sans a trial
Still it beats consigning your tomorrow
In the pits of doom and peerless sorrow:
Heading nowhere serves one lazy default;
How you might get there, not that difficult!
(2)
Finding nothing to do, you head elsewhere;
Since doing so, keeps you out of mischief,
You’d taunt the devil, courting disaster;
Shoring up the strength of your core belief,
You negotiate for maximum relief:
You head elsewhere to better leverage
The relentless, fierce ravages of age!
(3)
The screws tighten when push comes off as shove;
Still on that stage, an actor you remain;
With friends or foe, and blessings from above,
Take stock of arsenals in your domain
Then tame the wrath of vengeance for your gain:
Going somewhere serves an alternative
Depending on your own penchant to grieve!
