A Certain Unfading Memory



There is a certain unfading memory

Mornings, noons, and nights

That between thoughts causes rivalry

For which his questionable sanity fights



A strange serenity it relentlessly gives him

Within its reach there is absence of pain

And a denial that speaks pseudo freedom

The presence of which he suffers no disdain



It is etched in the sinews of this manís brain

A solitary reason for his existence it gives

Like dry earth needs wetness of rain

But his true desires are drained thru a sieve



This memory comes and overpowers the rest

Like a wrestler pinning an unworthy opponent

Hopefulness evaporates from his mindís interests

Slaving thirty years as a government proponent



But now, he retires
