Optimism in the Face of System Breakdown
 

    Beautiful Choices

 
 
Say, you are for the moment, marooned in
A whirling, jiggling dessert land of delusion,
trying to beat the attractions, shut down
responses, and they, your peers, will say:

Youíre depressed, turned off, gone spiritual.

If you jump for joy, express spirit and feel
unable to contain yourself over all the
Beautiful Choices you can make today,
they, your peers, will say:

Youíve gone manic, lotto gaga, real bizarre.

Adults are not supposed to act like kids in
candy stores or go dead calm despondent.
Thatís the law. Responsibility is a mid-way,
no matter how extreme you become, your

peers can take away all your hard won toys.
