The Road to 65, Mile 320: Colliding Forces

October 13, 2015, Chino Valley-

Thoughts on my new job, thus far:

Needs overlooked,

lead to outrage.

They who overlooked,

hold fast to the stage.

Pleading eyes of the young,

hope my time will bring meaning.

Flinty eyes of the old,

hope my time will be fleeting.

A child speaks truth to power.

Does my contemporary feign power,

yet inside, cower?

The waning forces subside,

Yet with a rising tide,

they collide.

  1. mysterious, yet powerful. “yet inside, cower” without the s makes it subjunctive, I believe, and would perhaps rhyme better.

  2. Oh dear — sounds like a difficult situation. I hope your time will not be fleeting; that it’s not a situation of the contemporary having bullied your predecessors away!
