NYDAS - DISTANCE
This story has not yet been rated.
It’s just no good, I’ve hit a wall,
I’ve no resources left at all.
I need to sleep, to rest, to play,
I need to sit and loaf all day
And do the things of little use
Except to loosen off the noose
Of working life, the daily toil,
That keeps us fed and often spoils
The quiet moments where the joy
Of little girl and little boy
Should triumph, keeping our attention
Not wander off to that invention
Built to keep us tame and quiet
Feeding us with death and riot,
Safely here within the home,
The castle with the careful dome
Of distance from the other people
Who try to climb our slippery steeple,
Reaching out, but all in vain,
She’s watching the TV again.
