No Better than Drowned Kittens
Few people do better than drowned kittens
Even when staying the course of relationships,
Most revert to former selves, create lost futures.
Socially-assigned gender roles make havoc
Thru sociopaths’ cravings, rage, entitlement.
Abstruse cultural strata remain off- putting.
Vitreous associations, like wine in tin cups,
Whether aided by philters or joyfully redolent,
Break down like stranded Atolla Jellies in July.
News of Atlantis has gone crazy on the Internet.
No characters’ playfulness can equal myalgia
Sourced from countless, dumb ocean swims.
