marching blind


innocuous
ticktock tick
and repeat incessant

to pass without caring
like people never met
who march quickstep
toward self-gratification

blinded focus ignores
please say hello oh please
of overlooked existence

isolate & insulate
no time for forethought
or after

giveitup give-in
begin

  2. You've woven this with truth, vision, and percision. For indeed this is the steady marching drill for this society!

    "to pass without caring
    like people never met
    who march quickstep
    toward self-gratification'

    Along with:

    "isolate & insulate
    no time for forethought
    or after"

    A true wordmeister thou art Beth!
