PLAYING GOD
(2/5/15)


we all
know them

they like
to start
things

set them
in motion

then
step back
to let others
implement
them

pay
for them

maintain
them

actually
the characteristic
is more childish
than that
of a deity

a puppy
becomes
Mom's

a bicycle
becomes
Dad's

a vacation
that nobody
really wanted
is suffered
by the entire
family

yet they
keep
getting
their way

sooner
or later
their petty reigns
all
come to an end

although
the rest
of us
may be
too exhausted

too broke

from catering
to their continually
fleeting desires

to realize

that their
alters
are finally
empty
