backwards

29 Nov

when i read about the decisions

made by men of high station

it seems they always get things backwards

their heads, in fact, are screwed on wrong

their eyes are perpetually looking behind

they are vigilantly prepared for the past

and their feet are stuck on in such a way

that a retreat will occur each time they advance

and it seems they keep on doing things over and over

referring to the same old worn out manual

so when i read about these things

as if i were somehow stuck inside a repeating

episode and everybody just wants

to get the right ending this time

it’s early and i’ve got to go to work

such thoughts are better not thought
