folly and fantasy

Posted: October 19, 2014 in Uncategorized

                                  all the things you do

                                 buzzing in your head

                                   dizzy from the motion

                                 of mindless momentum

                                   and thoughtless action

 

                              with no intelligence to fuel them

                              they tap directly into muscle

                              to energize this crazed existence

 

                                 all these doomed quests

                                  to discover happiness

                                      and other lost treasure

 

                                 these forgotten legends spring up

                                       from a bottomless well

                                  that feeds the fountain of youthful folly

 

                              fantasy is a poor life plan

                              but living’s no good without it
