And then I walked into the background
To visit the lonesome age of the proud
To see them at sea
And hear their incessant plea.
They looked at me with disgust
But I, with plight
I could sense the sense of this marauding
Beast in a stance
But their dancing eyes swindled the glittering heart-dance
And then my inexorable rump spoke
Hey! Leave this yoke for another day
This beast of the nation to their talkless talk
And deliberate dive to death’s play
When a man sinks into the wells of life
He doesn’t know how to stop the strife
He must pry into the thoughts of his mind
Willing or not; it exhumes and he is blind
In his conundrum ways suffice
Coming in like water embracing the soil.
In aged age of aptness he smiles the mice
He malice the world as he takes a solitude coil.
