Crisis mode

The cycle is ongoing it seems. I don’t recall the events of 1989 that caused me to jot down these lines of poetry. It seems the mantra of the day is, never waste a good crisis. It hasn’t changed much. Tragedy and bad news sell. When we realize that it becomes a little easier to digest the daily drivel. The longer I experience life the more I am determined that worrying is good. It seems that the things I worry about never happen! Imagine that.


I’ve become so weary
hearing of all that ends life
that I’ve quit living
for fear of encountering a killer along the way
and so I’m dying
slowly, painfully, alone
without cheeseburgers, cigarettes and beer
Oh, the agony
it is to much for a mere mortal
give me one more cup of Maxwell House
and take me from this sea of carcinogens
wide eyed and rearing to go

Searching high and low no matter where i go it always seems the same: shades of grey. Or, was that gray?
