Walk on the wild side

Urgent intergenerational
Redress and preservation
Ruthlessness is blinding
Remove the bandages

Merciful atmosphere
Under blurry blue skies
Peering through the misty
Semipermeable brown

Crumbling fort walls in ruins
Foggy panes, heavy rain
Windows ajar for smashing
Ceiling made of glass

Sharpen your darts
Destination is your weapon
Take aim to remedy
Through camera lens befriend

Flaky armchair oaths
Conceal fading hopes
Triumphs self-taught
Tightrope taut, time to walk

Hiding behind complacency
The decency of tasks
Gives momentum
To masked up languishing

The beach is calling
Blasting sand, raging high tide
Walk on the wild side
Counter culture seeping

A seaweed hat
Disguises the weeping
