Modern Realism

Modern Realism

Ever feel overwhelmed
by the randomness of it all?

Events drifting in and out
on the currents of time
with no apparent reason or rhyme

Humanity always in react mode
collectively theorizing
in a futile attempt to make sense
of the sporadic nature of chaos

Flying tattered kites
into a raging tornado

Never quite knowing
which way
the wind will be blowing

Destruction is the fate of man

So close your soon to be
permanently shut eyes

Hold on tight
and ride your ignorance
for as long as you can
