Tik tock, tik tock. The seconds pass unmercifully, leaving us with awareness of wasted time that we will never, ever get back. Wasted on doubt, on compassion, on those who do not deserve it. So I have learned my lesson. I learned it over and over again until my body and soul could not bear it any longer. I had to change my game. I jumped of this great swing of life and now I am pushing it. Whatever pleases me, whatever I desire or find interesting enough I slither my way into to get what I want and more. The master puppeteers, great manipulators, would blush with envy if only they were aware of my great skill. So I declare and dictate: Swing, swing…
…swing to the left, swing to the right, back , front, stop, turn around, fall to the ground.
Is it for money? Is it for sex? So perhaps in the name of some philosophy? Choose whichever you prefer… it all ends with me.
