Whim and Fancy - by Bob Atkinson

Whim and Fancy
(c)2014 Bob Atkinson

what should we do today
has hope diminished our display
trending toward that bottom line
of fishing for a sequenced rhyme

tell me should this find arrangement
or should discussion broadly frame it
sensing toes can stop a sneeze, as would
covering shoulders against a breeze

squarely putting mind in box
do's and don't's of perfect caution
herein lies that open point
we're told by nature what's important

whim and fancy deviate
from that purpose by opening gates
which let devotion diminish fast
dissolving quickly as if a gas

so balance needs some edges firm
what can and can't find us drawn
toward some independent nature
which satisfies our staid arrangement
