Tag Archives: uncertainty


Errant words in disarray;

I grasp for them futilely,

I yearn for focus but it is ever illusory;

I feel over-burdened at times, by the task ahead,

My only salvation is that I am not alone in this,

And those that rely on them, rely on me (in varying degrees of necessity);

For, in this inherently uncertain world;

It is the great responsibility that shudders you awake from helpless reverie,

Sometimes, that is all you need:

A millisecond of clarity within a thick fog of uncertainty,

To catch a glimpse of the path ahead, and restore momentary focus and determination,

For the rest, I have always been a stubborn, arrogant, brute, to do anything other than the way I see it;

And age hasn’t seemed to have dulled this sense;

So, I have thrown my dice in this great game and path of life thus;

Have you?

The Good-enough Guys

Good Guys versus Bad Guys;

It’s a simple tale told since the beginning of time;

The Good Guys can’t be good all the time,

And, turn into Bad Guys… sometimes,

Excuses are excuses, and become inexcusable, when:

The bad things the Good Guys do, turn out not to be just one-offs;

Revelations escape, like faint shafts of light through pinholes in the veil of secrecy,

Maintained in the name of national security, with intricate embroidery around each pinhole;

Trying desperately to disguise and deflect attention, that the veil is nought but a face-saving exercise!

Good-enough guys is what we seem to have ended up with,

And, I ask you in all sincerity:

Is that enough?
