while falling down

with the exception
of the sadists amongst us
who exert themselves
on naive
we have no control
we do not self-create

the work force
the prison system
the gubmint
the church
have control over
their populations

but are impotent when faced with nature

control freaks
are outrageously deluded futilists

control is an illusion
a man made concept
like linear time
and money

control should be stricken
from our planetary lexicon

replaced with zen
complete non-resistance

the universe will do as it pleases
with your carbon based ass

ask the moon
or any passing meteor

acceptance is bliss


i know it well

as i wrote this poem
while falling down
an unforgiving mountain
of limestone steps
