Off to Nowhere

No matter how the epochs change

Nor how base fragments rearrange

We think we grow in worldliness

Quite inversely, I must confess

In degrees, we grow more isolated

More irritated and frustrated

Surrender thinking and the doing

Of kindliness we are eschewing

Collapsing in a crumbled heap

Our stories straight, we cannot keep

Who is to blame, it’s not ourselves

Our woes are caused by someone else

We cannot raise our heads to see

Collision course with stolid tree

Each day hubristic attitude

Directs our course to nothing good

Impossible is human nature

Turns altruism into a traitor

And yet we move with rising speed

We let our swagger take the lead

The finish line we have blown past

In madness, off to nowhere fast!
