Strange fates and unwanted destinies Stuck and ensconced on us like barnacles Adding to our discomfort and dismay Evanescent ease, inconstant joys Our inheritance from alien origins Undeserved legacy foisted on us
Our sojourn is not from ease to ease But rather moving from worse to worst Snatching bread from mouth to mouth Living lives from barrenness to little worth Can you find a hiatus from this affliction? Yes, but, it's an infinitesimal wait.
