    Life's Jest
    Around and around
    circling a path
    worn into the very bedrock
    of unwanted existence.

    Along that trail of tears,
    shiny baubles
    and glittering jewels
    lay amongst the thorns,
    promising me hope
    yet are nothing
    but mirages with teeth
    drawing blood
    each time I reach out
    to snatch at them.

    No more I say.
    Life, that capricious imp
    will see only my middle finger
    giving my farewell
    as I pass by on this tired oval.

    I will run, not walk
    so I can wear out
    this body faster
    and be done with it
    once and for all.
