A man, straight down the hill,
perfectly in the middle,
looking so small in the distance,
looking so foreboding in black suit,
arms stretched out and upward,
like a movie, like The Matrix,
over-powering the upside-down V
valley into which my spirit is shoved,
he knows all, terrifies all.
I am only a passenger
in a ship that is doomed,
rapidly traveling down,
down the valley,
preordained to self-sabotage,
to find him,
but I keep working so damned hard.

Knowing the ship is doomed is insightful. Remaining aboard is kinda dumb.

Easy, Carl, the seas are stormy!

I think it’s important to keep working as damned hard as you can because your efforts may still bring some fruit before the ship sinks.

I think you’re right and I hope so. Thanks for your comment!
