A Fog State

A fog state

Is not clear

Or heard of

In times of trouble

It falls back

To the old ways

Of knowing

What to do

When the fog falls thick

And fills everyones eyes

With confusion

I know a fog state

And we are living through the densest

Of nights

Wall Street Chaos

Wall Street chaos

Directed by Silicon Valley fingers

The triggers going off

In all the whimpers

What is shaping now

Is hard to determine

Which way is up

And which way is down

For the average looker on

That the book on the shelf

Little do I know

Little do I care

But it impacts the forces

That bear on self

The Far Side of Life

On the far side

Of life

I have said many goodbyes

A few hellos

Quite a few yes’s

And the occasional no

I have grown

To come and know

What is good in life

What is to be cherished

What wastes time

And what is meritless

So everyday I rise

And smile

For what time we have here

Is just a short

While
