Daily missive for Thursday the 2nd of January~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Thursday the 2nd of January

We are lost
As close to the bottom
As we are to the top
There is precious little
Middle ground
Underused
Inhabited as it is
By a host of rational thinkers
With fingers crossed
Waiting for a deadline
To pass
Before flying off
The handle
Caught up in a frenzy
Of denial
Nobody knows
Where the time goes
Whichever way
You choose
There is too much to lose
To risk exposure
As an eccentric
Remain eclectic
Innovation is a disease
A deviation from the norm
Fill out a form
Before you join
The queue
Take a ticket
Wait inline
Donate blood
Never walk a river bed
It just might flood
Never dance with a stranger
In the rain
But what is plain
If we do nothing
We will stay lost
Stuck in the middle
Lost in a riddle
For the duration
Of the game
All the same.
