systematic lemonade


systematic is the way to go
in anything we say or do

systematic is the way we shop
whether on foot or online
picking items without much thought
consuming them on the spot
or saving them in the freezer
for a rainy day

systematic is the way we work
the sheepdog and the wolf
clocking in and punching out
less concerned with the score
anxious to get home for a few quiet hours
drinking wine and feasting on mutton

systematic is the way we kill en masse
always on the lookout and finding
new and improved ways
to exterminate whatever cancer
threatens us from living in peace

  1. I love the mention of the sheepdog and the wolf. Didn’t see that coming.

  2. Killing for peace.. yes that’s the wolf’s way for sure.
