Extra Time

Sweat drips. Calfs pound. Countless hours. Clock wound. 

Eternity within reach. Mustering focus and grit. Heartbeats collectively accelerate. This is it.

Calculated chaos. Preparation unfolds. Certainty to panic. A sight to behold.

When seconds last hours. Men become boys. Factions are selected. Billions ride on a toy.

The balance of life. One anointed. One relieved. 

Strut

Forgotten? Occasionally thought of. A legacy no more. Cherished? Unrespected. A wife. A whore.

Showboating around town? Mindless of manners. Respected by few?  Does it even matter?

Of course it does, or did, rather, at least. Once upon a time there was no midnight creep. 

Shit changes quick. Selfie game fleek? Acronyms and emojis. Tongue in cheek? Up shit’s creek. Down with the ship? Count to ten. Don’t peak.

Sleeping Beauty

Lucious and plump. Salty and sweet. Vivaciously whispering. A midnight treat.

Spoon fed via shovel. Hand roasted Devine. Affinity is trouble. Motionless swine. 

Bamboozled and flustered. Coy and erect. Incoherently lusted. Long live respect. 

Luminous bubbles. Crispness of thought. No more trouble. All for nought.

Infatuation passed. Adornment stalled. Hit the replay button. Give her another call. 

Focus Pocus

Tea bags and breaststrokes. Limp noodles and okey dokes. Clocks wound. Caps hung. At least, respect your anthem. And, stop blaming others for your own faults. Learn to man up and walk the fucking walk. Get off social media. Get back to life. Enjoy what you have. Stop fighting the wrong fight.

Mindless midgets suppressing their moments of fame. Countless cunts simply following the same. Who should we blame? It’s not me or I. There must be a scapegoat to smack in the eye?

Prodded and provoked. An act of war invoked. One desperate gasp as you are being choked. Asleep or awoke. A victim of a cloak. The only way out is to soak in your yoke.

Practice what you preach. Better yet, don’t preach, just practice. Get better each day. Nonsense shouldn’t distract us.

Focus on your goals. Thank those who help. Give back to some. Accumulate the proper kind of wealth.
