The Drone

By Tony DeLorger © 2012


I am impaired by dull and monotonous pleas,

words void of impact from hearts lack-luster,

murmuring meek and resistant,

to the truth tall standing.


How I detest their whining,

their incessant drone of in-consequence,

forever raking the soft flesh of my ears,

and imbibing an anger of impatience.



I wish my thoughts could cull the throng of the mundane,

cut short the lives of trite pretense,

and assemble a mastery of valid passion,

to quash the meaningless quivery of loathing.



But here I stand, surrounded by the nattering of bugs,

the profundity of illusions and the silence of right,

while I languish in my own abstinence,

unwilling to chose complacency over value.



How willing am I to fade into the veil of commonality,

relinquish hold on my values of substance,

and dumb down my brain to accept languid reality,

the beginning of a slide from enlightenment.



In all that I am I wish this tirade to end,

the sounds of battered voices relenting,

to end their monotonic drone,

and leave a mind at peace with its own impartiality.

That's awesome Tony. Really well placed words. Some of them I haven't seen in a long time. lol. I like your use of the word "tirade". Good work.
