Held fast in a geometric stance,
You treat us with disdain,
Too intent upon your task,
As your reflections telescope into the distance.
A roller coaster from the unknown.
Sharing our space as an uninvited guest,
As a guardian of others' progress,
You resonate a note of discord,
As our lifeblood passes through your veins.
Yet still you are despised!
Borrowing the dimensions of an ancient oak,
You reject the seasons,
Untroubled by their Rhythm,
Preferring instead perpetual winter,
And the bare bones of a skeletal form.
A slave to the logic of supply and demand,
You follow orders without question,
Confident in your conformity.
And, if threatened,
You'd pull your jackboots from the ground.
