TURMOIL

“Sugar, spice and everything nice”,

I wonder who came up with these words so wise-

While I stare at the waves rise,

I can tell we’ll all have to pay a heavy price;

Starry skies or a spectacular sunrise,

We fail to realise

.

.

Goals and ambitions we chase,

Without time to break out of the rat race;

We barely know how to react to praise,

And in poker we seldom raise;

We should learn to embrace,

Our flaws and the entire human race.
