this thing

we all seem to like to do

gets overlaid

burdened by any everything

& like all drugs

so much simpler to the young

do it for a while

& if it keeps being good

keep on doing it

if not stop

try something else

until we find

we’ve bought in too far

over our heads deep

got debt babies cars homes

lawns to cut

work to go to every day

for?

for this thing we like to do

tried to put a rope on

only caught ourselves
