Poem - Distraction Takes

The poem “Distraction Takes” is about going through the motions of life while seeking a small reprieve.


Distraction Takes

Distraction takes the place of cheer
the later sadly has disappeared
in its place the now insists
for replacement lest life slips

that slope demanding sacrifice
when delight has turned to fright
damning present to be worse
than a death that’s life reversed

perhaps amusement is the cure
even though the fun diverts
from a path that assures
something lasts beyond the curse

still adherents will pursue
decoys instead of truth
for one more day darkness flees
waiting for the end’s decree.
