Fool's Gold

The protectors,

they shirked their duties for self-pity,

left us in our own confusion,

lost in a merry-go-round of adaptation,

stewing in our own juices,


Some kinda crude rendering of a treasure map,

in poor condition,

that was our guide,

our mattress tag.


Now we ax the same mines as they did then

except there's no spittoon for the 5 o'clock brain-ruster

at the local saloon
