The Lifeguard Is Watching

Watcher is careful.
Lifeguard, oxymoron.
Chair is empty and all small people
are drowning.
Watcher is proud.
Watcher encourages motions against death.
Are you not proud of yourself?
You’ve delivered on obligations –
with diligence and aplomb.
Watcher is careful.
Would you rest in a bed of pride?
Don’t break all of your wings.
Watcher is proud.
I am dying.
The lifeguard is watching
the lovely ladies playing volleyball.

    If the Watcher is God’ perhaps a little more intervention is due in what so many would agree is a seriously flawed Creation.

      Now that I reflect, I need some sort of intervention daily just for my little soul. God may be almighty, but intervention is Mission Impossible.

      Thank you for commenting, Carl. I always appreciate your insight.
