UNNECESSARY EVILS
(2/8/18)

our perception
of time
is usually
the culprit

we become
bored
when not
actively pursuing
our job
requirements

our personal
desires

for without
drive

determination

toward
something
of righteous
interest

bad things
are bound
to happen

through
careless
action

apathetic
inaction

sloppy
speech

thoughtless
thinking

wishing
that we were
somewhere

sometime
else

instead
of fully occupying
our present
position

paying attention
to our surroundings

preventing
the devil
of deviant developments
from turning us
into puppets

we become
incremental accidents
adding
to outright
tragedy

or at least
to outright
shame

when we
allow ourselves
a surfeit
of leisure

we seem
genetically bent
toward darkness

toward self

we need
jobs to do
when survival
ceases to be
job enough

a yoke

not a
joke
