Lackluster days
and insignificant nights
A respite from monotony
In the disconsolate lights
No rest for the wicked
another dismal chore
never a variance
identical to the one before
Expecting the worse
Hoping for the best
No exception to this rule
You can guess the rest
A lonely pointless life
Sad as sad can be
Trapped on the hamster wheel
Running, running to be free
Finding no way out
of a miserable existence
Walking barefoot
on this path of passive resistance
