Ask not what. (TR4)

Ask not what

we

Can do for you

But what you can do for us;

I paraphrase.

I am sure no one will mind.

for, the essence is the same.

Like lackadaisical

bumpkin

Wandering

Innocent

Into backwater feud

Between

villagers

And

Tyrants;

Swords drawn

And dramatic music;

There follows ten

minutes

Of carefully choreographed chaos

And

It is over.

Winners and losers

And perhaps

A kidnapped

Beauty.

This is when you stumble into a mess

That isn’t of your making.

The solution

Can only be found within;

What,

If the turbulence is so great,

The lack of insight

And understanding

So profound

That there is no chance of a heroic

Inversion?

Exiled monk

Becomes caught

In a nightmare

That doesn’t approach morning

But falls

Deeper

Into night.

  1. In the nature of the person I think, to make war or make peace? The peacemaker (lackadaisical bumpkin,great image,but I don’t think so), receives the slings and arrows of both sides. Back to the natural world for now and to the wonderful pwd who tell or indicate how it is without fear or favour?
