A Rational Anthem
(back to poetry 2000 index)

Here's yet another poem where I think I'm analyzing our existence in Society these days. See what you get out of it.

A Rational Anthem

 

In our heart of hearts

We know, we know

We come around

Around we go

Spinning wheels

Spinning tires

Spinning thoughts

On spinning spires

We wonder why

I ask, why wonder?

They've spun the spell

You've been put under

Drugged and numb

In an addict's attic

Remote in hand

You crave the static

You live in the current

Of this current existence

Would never question

One man's persistence

In a losing game

Of love and hate

We hate to love

Predestined fate

Now entertain

This final thought

Could we be lost

If found we're not?
