Shaman - Horse

Poem - Moves to Shock

The poem “Moves to Shock” was inspired by a Twitter posting by @EmMcchrystal that stated “Being me is actually so funny. Imagine. Being me. You could never. You would all DIE of SHAME being me. I am so powerful to still exist even tho I’m the most embarrassing entity to ever live on this earth.”


Moves to Shock

There are two ways this could go
when the measure has been resolved
of whether nature moves to shock
or boredom is the end result

shame is assumed without proof
humiliation only found
with a result that mortifies
death by variety that fills a life

while reality says otherwise
tedium becomes the norm
apathy fills the void
when existence is switched about

the latter is the sad result
embarrassment put aside
in diversity the truth is known
comparisons become too trite.
