TIME OFFERS NO CEASEFIRE

time1

Lava flow unto tarmac

Fjords unto corridors

Fire and brimstone unto ice

Perfection unto flaws

 

Eden unto Hiroshima

Atom unto bomb

Locusts unto GMO

Mighty Thor unto Islam

 

Tree of Life unto robotics

Bewilderment unto psalm

Freedom fighter unto martyr

Draft dodger unto Vietnam

 

Savage are the changes

Wretched the desire

All that is disintegrates

Time offers no ceasefire

Given I am cursed with a wretched toothache I find it impossible to write. Worse still my dentist cannot eliminate the offending tooth until Tuesday hence herewith an oldie

    1. Further reply! If the dentist wants a grand to pull it out or even more right now I’d pay the price…probably have to mug him for my money back the next day though!

    1. I now sit at my desk with a numb mouth and one tooth less! I read your post today in the dentists waiting room but couldn’t comment because the predictive text on the mobile sends me insane. I will attempt to remedy my lack of comment a little later for now I shall have a kip! By the way the smelly bloke say next to me in the waiting room was looking at porn on his IPhone!

      1. Yuck! That’s disgusting! Or come to think of it, he was probably in such a LOT of pain thinking some porn might help. Wish you luck and sanity šŸ™‚

      2. I found it odd that he was a bit scruffy, smelt yet had a flash new IPhone! Had roles been reversed and my wife (or indeed any gal for that matter) had had the misfortune to sit next to him I do believe I’d have had a quiet word in his ear; read him his fortune!

  1. “Bewilderment unto psalm”

    Lovely line. How quickly we codify our confusion in an effort to conceal it.

    Excuse the alliteration. I couldn’t resist the temptation.

      1. I don’t think one needs to be an atheist to be skeptical of attempts to cover up our ignorance. But I suppose it is easier to be skeptical if one doesn’t have pre-existing allegiances to complex dogmas.
