Complacency

entry picture

Locked in a steel cage,
No where to run and hide.
A public spectacle,
Running in circles but going nowhere.
Stuck in a rutt,
Is there more to life than these four walls?
Thinking outside the box was unheard of,
Life seemed to be pre-established.
Complacency is the new smoking,
Satisfying in the moment but won't fulfill a destiny.
Only a select few can choose to live different,
So why not make it you?

Nathan,

Thank you for a poem which also speaks to us as much as about the poor cat. Complacency or apathy are the drugs of today to tranquilise us. Only by being outside of the box or cage will we experience all the benefits of liberation.

Good poem
Keith
