fast vehicles only

a roomful of shortcuts in a cloak
masquerading as innovation
in the name of convenience
and progress

never ever confess
as a stickler for the rules—
they’ll dub thee fixated
on straight lines
while they zigzag
cut, bulldoze and take

too bad
you’re not fast enough

when mind goes on the offensive

I’ll go out on a limb and say
this is a whole lot of crap

book that says to each
their own blessings

gratitude bordering
is where status quo lives

look down and not up
they say

but really
who wants
to stay

and those who do,

for goodness’ sake–
