It’s a common psychosis
paranoid and narcissistic
if not obsessive and schizophrenic
and it’s enough to make you socially manic
if not depressive in an existential panic, who me?
Work and play
to meet the day
it’s therapeutic and functional
be sure and positive
whether occupational or diversional, who am I?
Soldier on (and on) till off
never mind the determining trough
in fear (mind your step) of an existential stall
close to the reality wind
we sail fair to thee all, what are we?
Hedonistic talking heads and vectored
we each pop open sails billowed
front, up and out right
skewered skew’if and secured
cornered across centred tight, what might we do?
