Efforts to Seek - by - Bob Atkinson

Efforts to Seek
(c)2016 Bob Atkinson


we’ve settled into our
fast way of life
judging and mocking
and professing our right


yet not letting fellow
passengers on planet
find their own purpose
a vile older habit


to judge what another says in a quip
let’s us step back to an old backward slip
where aboriginal origins peek through a veil
reversing our progress on evolution’s trail


don’t think you’re advanced and trade all you’re worth
for a process of dogma and cocky mirth
that says something funny with a political eye
yet finds no direction with pie in clear sky


a penchant for sarcasm puts us in mire
such feelings belong right there in that fire
where advancement gets right down to red meat
and puts down a list of efforts to seek
