A Lifetime Spent With This Restless Quest: 5 Poems
Author: Colin Stewart
This self-help guide may serve you best
so you can still keep up with all the rest
to be accountable for your actions and pass the test
by avoiding isolation as a whimpering pest!
Apparently they do it without a blink
and this pandemic reflex is the link
to the lack of coordination between brain and hand.
Something a litterbug will never understand!
With unpredictability and character flaws
the search for perfection is a lost cause
as we succumb to the depths of a demographic well.
The marketing of human nature is not an easy sell!
Fickle and fleeting just for awhile
of what constitutes your subjective smile
is the very definition of vogue and style
although this zeitgeist only carries a temporary file!
A fall from grace was to blame.
He lost his dignity and encountered shame.
A good man proceeded to extinguish the flame
and sadly the end of his family name!
